The  fullest  attendance  we  have  seen  at  cither  theatre  this  season, 
honoured  the  benefit  of  Miss  JVI.  Tree  last  evening.  The  pit  was 
filled  ;  every  seat  in  it  was  occupied  immediately  on  the  opening  of 
the  doors,  and  before  half-pries  the  boxes  and  slips  were  thronged  to 
excess.  Those  who  came  in  late  were  obliged  to  officiate  as  lobby- 
loungers,  of  which  there  was  a  very  numerous  squad  condemned  to 
saunter  without  a  seat  throughout  the  night.  This  testimony  of  public 
favor  is  as  marked  as  it  is  merited.  There  is  no  lady  on  the  stage  who 
exceeds — nay,  perhaps,  who  equals — Miss  Tree  in  that  most  exqui- 
site attribute  of  song — deep  and  pathetic  feeling,  which  shows  that 
the  sentiment  flows  from  the  heart,  and  that  the  sound  is  but  an  echo 
of  the  sense.  In  that  beautifully  impressive  ballad,  "  Home,  sweet 
home"  which  was  most  deservedly  encored,  the  words  dropt  from  her 
lips  "  like  the  dew  from  the  bending  flower/'  and  the  notes  of  her  se- 
dulously cultivated  voice,  rise  "  like  a  stream  of  rich  perfumes  upon 
the  air."  In  the  character  of  Rosalind,  which  she  played  last  even- 
ing for  the  first  time,  she  was  eminently  successful.  There  is  no 
other  actress  on  the  stage,  who,  in  an  equal  degree,  unites  the  comic 
and  vocal  abilities  which  are  suited  to  this  interesting  part.  Miss  A. 
Tree  made  her  second  appearance  (as  Celia)  on  any  stage,  and  the 
first  of  this  season.  She  is  a  very  pleasing,  though  not  powerful, 
singer,  formed  on  the  model  of  her  sister.  A  Concert  of  well-selected 
aad  popular  music  followed  the  play.

Messrs.  Blanchard  and  Ware  took  a  joint  Benefit  here  last  night, 
and  we  understand  had  a  good  house. 

^apinarfett  €(jcattc* 

The  Opera  of  Sweethearts  and  Wives  has  lost  none  of  its  attrac- 
tions, except  the  loss  of  Mr.  Terry,  who,  although  Mr.  Williams 
is  very  clever,  is  greatly  missed  at  this  house. 

EDrtirp  %anc  €&eatr& 

Last  night  the  amusing  Comedy  of  The  Heir  at  Law,  was  repre- 
sented with  very  excellent  effect.  Mr.  Dowton  acted  Daniel  Dowlas, 
alias  Lord  Dnberly,  and  made  an  admirahlc  Chandler.  Mr.  Harley 
represented  Doctor  Pangloss,  and  a  very  entertaining  one  he  was. — 
Mr.  Knight  is  nature,  simple  nature  itself,  in  the  character  of  the 
honest  warm-hearted  country  lad,  Zekiel  Homespun.  Mrs.  Orger 
was  an  excellent  Cicely,  and  Mr.  Penley  amusing  as  Dick  Dowlas. 

Mr.  Mathews  closed  his  most  successful  Entertainment  for  the 
season  last  night,  with  the  following  Farewell  Address  : — 

"  Ladies  and  Gentlemen — In  once  more  taking  my  leave  of  you  for  a  season, 
I  wish  I  could  think  on  something  to  say  which  would  entitle  you  to  exclaim 
with  our  late  friend  Mr.  Bray—"  Well  I  never  heard  that  before  ;'**  hut  the  lan- 
guage of  grateful  acknowledgment  is  soon  exhausted,  however  unbounded  may 
be  the  feeling  that  prompts  it.  To  say  I  am  proud  of  your  applause,  and  grate- 
ful for  your  kindness,  is  a  •*  twice  told  tale,"  which  has  been  more  than  thrice 
repeated,  but  be  assured  that  the  undiminished  favour  I  have  experienced  has 
year  after  year  increased  my  anxiety  to  merit  your  smiles,  and  will  leave  an  in- 
delible recollection  on  my  heart  when  I  and  my  hnmbl-2  efforts  to  amuse  you  may 
perhaps  be  forgotton.  While  thus  encouraged  It  would  be  affectation  if  not  in- 
gratitude to  talk  of  retiring  from  public  life;  while  I  continue,  therefore,  to 
receive  your  approbation,  I  shall  continue  my  endeavours  to  deserve  it ;  and 
trust  I  shall  next  year  be  able  to  present  you  with  something,  at  least  as  well 
deserving  your  attention  as  any  thing  I  have  heretofore  had  the  pleasure  and 
honour  of  submitting  to  your  notice.  With  this  hope,  and  the  gratifying  an- 
ticipation of  soon  meeting  yon  again,  1  most  reepectfully  and  cordially  bid 
you  farewell." 

Mr.  Booth. — We  regret  to  learn,  that  Mr.  Booth,  the  actor,  who  has  been 
performing  some  nights  at  the  Park  Theatre,  in  a  state  of  mental  derangemant, 
on  Saturday  made  an  attack  upon  Mr.  Wallack,  of  the  Chatham  Garden  Thea- 
tre, with  a  dagger,  and  being  foiled,  made  an  attempt  to  destroy  himself,  but 
was  secured,  and  conveyed  to  the  house  of  a  friend.  We  hope  he  will  soon  re- 
cover, if  he  has  not  already,  and  never  again  use  his  dagger  but  in  mimic  scenes. 
This  hit  might  have  been  too  palpable. — American  Paper.

Yesterday  evening  there  was  a  very  crowded  house,  it  being  what 
is  called  a  ticket-night.  The  Comedy  of  John  Bull  was  excellently 
performed.  Mr.  Fawoett's  Job  Thornlerry,  and  Miss  Chester's 
Jfa)%  were  particularly  well  acted.  Mr.  Cooper  represented  Pere- 
grine with  much  judgment  and  effect,  and  Mr.  Jones  and  Mrs.  Chat- 
tbrley  as  the  fashionables,  were  quite  at  home.  Mr.  Connor,  Mr. 
Kayner,  and  Mrs.  Davenport,  supported  the  Brnlgruden/s,  and 
Dan,  very  humorously,  and  the  Sir  Simon  Rochdale  of  Mr.  Blan- 
chard  was  very  well  played.     The  Farce  of  Cent,  per  Cent,  followed.

CORRESPONDENTS. 

A  Constant  R<aucr  wishes  to  know  why  so  impartial  and  fair  a  critic  as   the 
Editor  of  The  Theatrical  Observer  has  ever   been,  should  consider  it  be- 
neath his  notice  to  give  some  account  of  the  performances  at  Drury  Lane  Thea- 
tre, on  the  occasion  of  Miss  Booth's  Benefit  last  night. 
July  I,   1S-21. 

In  rep]y  to  the  above  the  Editor  begs  to  say,  that  it  is  impossible  for  the 
moderate  profits  of  this  Publication  to  bear  tbV-c^nense  of  being  present  at 
every  Benefit.  The  Editor  greatly  admires  the  talents  of  Miss  S.  Booth,  and 
should  have  been  happy,  on  every  account,  to  have  shewn  her  the  fullest 
attention.

Tins  highly  pleasant  Summer  Theatre  opened  for  its  regular  season 
on  Saturday  night.  Notwithstanding  the  bad  weather,  a  numerous 
and  genteel  audience  were  assembled  in  the  course  of  the  evening.—- 
The  first  piece  was  the  amusing  Opera  of  The  Barber  of  Seville, 
which  afforded  an  opportunity  for  Mr.  Philipps  to  resume  his  post 
here  after  a  lapse  of  many  years.  His  vocal  powers  are  at  least  of 
an  agreeable  description,  and  altogether  were  very  satisfactorily 
displayed.  The  chief  attraction  of  the  evening  was  a  pupil  of  his, 
a  Miss  Harvey,  a  very  engaging,  and  very  young  lady,  who  made 
her  debut  in  the  difficult  part  of  Rosina.  When  we  say  that  to  many 
personal  charms,  this  young  debutante,  united  vocal  skill  of  a  superior 
nature,  it  will  not  be  surprising  that  she  should  be  received  with  the 
most  decided  marks  of  approbation  by  the  whole  audience.  Her 
lower  tones  are  peculiarly  full  and  deep,  whilst  her  upper  notes  are 
clear,  and  extensive.  Mips  Harvey  has  evidently  been  instructed  with 
much  care,  and  if  there  is  a  fault  to  dwell  upon,  it  is  an  occasional 
deficiency  of  richness  of  melody  in  her  voice,  and  a  partial  abandon- 
ment of  expression  for  execution  :  this  she  can  greatly  correct.  She 
sang  the  favorite  air  of  "  Mayand  Uecembery'  in  a  manner' that  in- 
duced the  andlence  to  call  on  her  for  it  a  second,  and  even'  a  third 
time;  with  which  she  complied  with  every  demonstration  becoming 
of  modest  pleasure  and  grateful  feeling.  We  consider  her  both  on 
account  of  her  agreeable  acting  and  voice,  a  considerable  acquisition 
to  this  theatre,  where  such  vast  exertions  have  been  made  this  season 
to  gratify  the  public  with  some  of  our  most  esteemed  and  admirable 
vocalists — A  new  Pantomime  followed,  which  met  a  favorable  reception.

Bnir.iiTON  Theatre — Every  preparation  is  making  for  the  opening  of  this 
elegant  little  Theatre  by  the  indefatigable  Russiu.l  :  the  season  commences  in 
about  a  fortnight,  and  if  he  pursues  the  same  liberal  course  as  last  year,  thore 
is  no  fear  of  a  repetition  of  that  support  he  has  so  many  years  deservedly  re- 
ceived from  the  public — his  mode  of  management  is  peculiar,  but  is  distin- 
guished for  its  correctness  and  spirit,  and  if  the  high  patronage  theTheutre  has 
received  since  under  his  direction,  is  any  criterion  of  good  management,  Mr. 
RU8S8LL  has  been  more  than  usually  fortunate — his  exertions  to  promote  the 
interests  of  the  profession  generally,  and  in  gratifying  the  pleasures  of  the 
public,  have  always  been  known  to  be  great  as  to  reader  any  further  comment 
from  us  unnecessary — his  company  aie  of  no  ordinary  kind — in  hit  seleetiou  of 
some  of  the  most  favorite  actors  on  the  London  boards,  he  has  gone  upon  an 
extensive  plan,  many  having  been  engaged  on  very  liberal  salaries.  The  Mr. 
Baurv,  from  whose  superior  acting  a  short  timesinceat  Windsor,  we  were  in- 
duced to  notice,  is  amongst  the  list  already  engaged  :  we  heartily  wish  bira 
every  success.  We  hear  the.  Races  commence  in  about  a  fortnight,  at  which

The  performances  of  last  night,  our  readers  are  aware,  were  de- 
voted to  the  purpose  of  Mrs.  Bland's  last  Benefit ;  and  we  arc  most 
happy  to  say  it  was  one  which  will  yield  her  some  resource  in  the  mo- 
ment of  her  difficulties.  Short  may  they  be,  and  speedy  her  complete 
recovery  to  enjoy  the  protection  of  that  public  she  has  so  often  de- 
lighted.

Mr.  C.  Kemble,  who  had  been  for  some  time  on  a  provincial  pro- 
fessional tour,  is  returned  to  town,  and  appeared  last  night  in  the 
character  of  Falstaff,  in  the  First  Part  of  King  Henry  the  Fourth, 
to  which  he  gives  so  much  humorous  point.  Mr.  Bennett  acted 
Hotspur  with  considerable  effect.  The  other  characters  were  well 
supported. 

Mr.  Coor/ER  and  Mr.  Rayner,  who  arc  both  highly  popular  per- 
formers, have  their  joint  Benefit  to-night.  The  King,  we  understand, 
has  graciously  given  up  the  Royal  Box  for  the  use  of  the  Mexican 
Envoy,  who  is  to  be  present.     A  great  house  is  expected.

Miss  Harvey  again  experienced  the  most  favorable  reception  in 
the  part  of  Rosina  ;  if  her  artificial  acquirements  only  equal  her  na- 
tural powers,  Miss  Tree,  and  even  Miss  Paton,  may  tremble  for 
their  laurels.     The  Monkey  Island  went  off  very  well.

There  was  an  excellent  attendance  here  last  night. — The  perform- 
ances of  this  evening  are  Exchange  no  Robbery,  Love  Laughs  at 
Locksmiths,  and  Two  Strings  to  your  Bow. 

Mr.  Harris  has  disposed  of  the  new  Theatre  Royal,  on  a  lease  of 
five  years,  at  the  annual  sum  of  £5000  British.  An  English  company 
are  the  lessees,  and  Mr.  Abbott,  of  Covcnt-garden,  is  to  be  at  the 
head  of  the  management. — Dublin  Paper. 

It  is  said  the  orders  by  which  the  officers  of  the  10th.  Hussars  were 
prohibited  from  attending  the  theatres  have  been  rescinded,  and  that 
three  of  the  corps  wern  permitted  to  attend  on  trial. — Ibid. 

Mrs.  Kemble  intends  to  defray  the  additional  expenses,  beyond  the  amount 
of  the  subscription,  of  the  Monument  intended  to  be  placed  in  Westminster 
Abbey,  to  commemorate  her  late  husband.  The  Monument  will  consist  of  a 
whole  length  of  the  great  actor  in  Roman  costume,  and  Cato  is  judiciously  se- 
lected as  the  character.  The  execution  of  it  is  consigned  to  Flaxman,  who 
was  a  very  particular  friend  of  Mr.  Kbmdle.

Mb.  Cooper,  Mr.  Uayner,  and  Miss  Lacy,  took  a  joint  Benefit 
here  last  night,  and  received  the  support  of  a  numerous  body  of 
friends,  and  admirers  of  their  talents.  Miss  Lacy  appeared  as  the 
Hon.  Mrs.  Qlcnroy,  and  also  as  Ella  Rosenberg,  which  she  acted 
most  interestingly.  Mr.  Cooper,  in  the  Comedy  of  Town  and  Coun- 
try, acted  Reuben  Glenroy,  a  part  to  which  he  communicated  an 
effect  that  did  not  diminish  the  estimate  formed  of  his  powers.  Mr. 
Ravner,  in  the  same  pieco,  acted  Jacky  Hawbuck  with  all  his  usual 
felicity  of  rustic  style.  The  Farce  of  The  Irish  Widow  presented  us 
with  the  debut  of  "  A  Lady/'  as  the  Widow  Brady.  This  was  a 
very  pleasing  and  successful  first  appearance.  In  person  and  coun- 
tenance, tone,  and  manner,  there  was  every  thing  to  admire.  She 
must  certainly  be  seen  again  in  the  character. 

£>rurp  flane  €f)eatrk 

Tub  Way  to  Get  Married  was  agreeably  acted  here  laat  night.  In 
the  melo-drama  of  The  Falls  of  Clyde,  Miss  S.  Booth  played  Ellen 
Enfield  in  a  most  interesting  manner. 

<£ngli$)  <£>peca^ott£e« 

Thb  pleasant  French  piece,  from  which  Match-Making  was  taken, 
and  was  acted  so  successfully  last  season  at  the  Haymarket,  has 
afforded  us  an  agreeable  Operetta  under  the  title  of  "  Military  Tac- 
tics."— It  amused,  from  being  weli  acted.  A  newly  arranged  song  of 
Mr.  Pearman's,  was  encored.  It  was  announced  for  Thursday  next 
without  the  slightest  disapprobation.  Tom  Thamh,  and  Monkey 
Island,  followed,  and  amused  much.  Master  Burke,  aged  five  years, 
astonished  by  his  performance  on  the  Violin. 

^apmarftct  €fjcatr& 

Love  Laughs  at  Locksmiths,  was  last  night  followed  by  Exchange 
no  Robbery,  in  which  Mr.  W.  Farren  appeared  for  the  first  time  as 
Sir  Christopher  Cranberry,  and  acted  it  with  an  effect  that  produced 
much  laughter  and  applause.  Mr.  Liston,  as  Sam  Swipes,  almost 
killed  sundry  persons,  whose  "lungs  did  cruw  like  chanticleer."  Mr. 
W.  West  played  Lamotte  very  humorously,  and  Mrs.  ChAttbrlby 
and  Mr.  Vining  received  much  applause.  Mrs.  Gibbs  was  prevented 
by  her  engagements  at  Covcnt  Garden  from  taking  her  part  of  Mrs. 
Swipes,  Mrs.  Jones  filled  it  very  well.  Two  Strings  to  your  Bow, 
gave  us  Madame  Vestrts.  who  delighted  with  her  charming  voice  and 
fascinating  acting. — This  evening,  Seeing  is  Believing,  Sweethearts 
and  Wives,  and  Two  Strings  to  your  Bote.

That  amusing  Comedy,  All  in  the  Wrong,  was  admirably  acted 
here  last  night.  Mr.  C.  Kemble,  Mr.  Jones,  Miss  Chester,  Mrs. 
Chattbrley,  &c.  &c.  distinguished  themselves  much,  and  received 
the  most  marked  approbation  from  a  genteel  audience,  amongst  whom 
were  the  Duke  and  Duchess  of  Glotjchbster. — The  house  was  thin. 

<£s!gligl)  <©pera^ouge* 

The  repetition  of  The  Barber  of  Seville,  at  this  house  last  night, 
was  attended  with  as  much  success  as  on  the  former  occasions,  and 
Miss  Harvey  appeared  to  equal  advantage.  She  is  a  very  pleasing 
actress,  as  well  as  a  superior  vocalist,  and  there  cannot  be  a  doubt, 
but  that  in  time,  and  under  an  able  instructor,  she  will  become  every 
thing  that  could  be  wished  for  in  an  accomplished  singer  and  perform- 
er. She  possesses  a  perfect  command  of  herself,  and  appears  to  have 
a  lively  perception,  therefore  her  progress  up  the  steeps  of  professional 
fame  may  be  considered  certain,  and  perhaps  rapid  if  she  devotes 
herself  with  ardour  to  the  profession  she  has  so  auspiciously  entered 
upon.  Mr.  Philips  is  said  to  have  had  her  under  his  tuition  but  a 
short  time,  and  if  so,  does  his  skill  and  assiduity  great  credit.  She 
executed  all  her  songs  with  effect,  and  particularly  that  of  the  singing 
duet j  and  also  "  May  and  December/'  which  were  encored. 

Miss  Kelly  we  are  most  happy  to  learn,  is  greatly  recovered  from 
her  serious  indisposition,  and  will  be  able  to  appear  here  in  some  of 
her  favorite  characters,  She  makes  her  debut  of  the  season  in  the  in- 
teresting part  of  Annette,  in  The  Maid  and  the  Magpie  this  evening.

Mr  Farley  had  a  crowded  attendance  last  night  at  his  Benefit. — 
)Ve  mentioned  the  other  day  that  a  new  candidate  for  dramatie  fame 
made  her  dehut  at  this  Theatre  on  Tuesday  last,  in  the  character  of 
the  IVtdoto  Brady.  We  had  not  space  at  that  time  to  say  much  of 
her,  and  therefore  take  this  opportunity.  Considering  the  difficulties 
which  attend  a  first  appearance,  and  that  on  the  London  boards,  there 
is  every  reason  to  congratulate  the  fair  debutante  (who  ia,  we  hear, 
a  Mrs.  IVfiLLBR,  and  widow  of  an  officer)  on  her  success.  Her  figure 
is  small,  but  elegant,  her  countenance  beautiful  and  animated  :  she 
possesses  a  voice  soft  and  clear,  an  articulation  distinct  and  expressive, 
and  a  manner  vivacious,graceful,and  unaffected  ;  to  these  qualifications 
may  be  added  a  delightful  naivete.  It  was  on  the  whole  an  admirable 
representation  of  the  lively  Widow,  and  the  assumed  part  of  Lieut. 
O'JVeale,  was  supported  with  great  spirit. — She  received  great  and 
deserved  applause  throughout.  This  lady  will  repeat  the  character 
on  Wednesday  next,  being  the  Farewell  Benefit  of  that  amiable 
actress  Miss  Beaumont. — Prince  Leopold -has  kindlv  intimated  to 
Miss  B.  that  his  box  was  at  her  service  on  the  occasion.  Ptlessrs.  Ce\- 
nor,  and  Cooke,  have  an  excellent  Comedy,  &c.  for  this  evening. 

<gngli$)  <Opcra^ou£e* 

After  Military  Tactics,  which  was  again  favorably  received, 
little  Master  Burke  played  an  air  on  the  violin  very  cleverly  for  so 
young  a  little  creature.  The  Maid  and  the  Magpie  was  then  per- 
formed, and  introduced  in  the  character  e-f  Annette, that  universal 
favorite  Miss  Kelly,  for  the  first,  time  this  season.  Her^ acting  'was, 
as  it  ever  is,  stamped  with  the  truest  understanding  of  her  assumed 
character ;  aod,  in  this  one,  genuine  feeling  was  never  better  pour- 
trayed.  She  was  welcomed,  with  all  the  cordiality  she  so  highly  me- 
rited, by  a  most  crowded  audience.  We  regret  to  say  all  the  other 
characters  of  this  piece  were  indifferently  supported,  except  those  by 
Mr.  Bartley,  Mrs.  Tayleure,  and  Mr.  T.  P.  Cooke.  A  Mr.  C.  F. 
Young,  from  America,  and  a  Mr.PERKTNs,  made  their  first  appearance. 
We  must  see  more  of  them  before  their  qualities  can  be  fully  judged  of

There  was  a  considerable  audience  attracted  here  last  night  by 
the  various  performances,  amongst  which  the  songs  by  Madame  Ca- 
talans, had  a  prominent  place.  Yet,  we  are  told  there  was  room  in

Mr.  Connor,  Mr.  T.  P.  Cooke,  and,  we  believe,  Miss  Love,  had 
a  joint  Benefit  here  last  night.  We  were  sotry  to  hear  that  "  robbery" 
and  "  forgery,"  (not  murder,  happily)  had  been  committed  on  Mr. 
Connor  in  respect  of  his  tickets. — The  house  was' crowded  to  excess. 

<£iigli$)  <£>pcra#ou3e* 

Mrss  Harvey  and  Mr.  Phllipps,  were  again  most  favorably  re- 
ceived in  The  Barber  of  Seville,  last  night — There  was  a  good  house. 

An  Opera,  upon  an  extensive  scale,  requiring  two  orchestras,  is  to 
he  produced  here,  and  has  had  two  general  rehearsals;  the  music  by 
Weber,  which  is  very  scientific  and  eilective  ;  each  rehearsal  has  oc- 
cupied six  hours.  Mr.  Braiiam  is  the  principal  character  in  it,  and 
has  paid  particular  attention  to  both  rehearsals.  The  Overture  to 
the  Opera  is  by  the  same  composer,  and  the  same  which  was  per- 
formed at  the  Oratorios  last  season  with  great  applause. 

^ajmiatftet  3Tljcatre* 

The  whole  of  the  entertainments  last  night,  were  of  a  most  mirth- 
creating  description — just  such  as  should  always  be  found  in  this  fa- 
vorite temple  of  humor.  The  first  piece  was  Matrimony,  in  which 
Mr.  Vining  and  Mrs.  Chatterley  sustained  with  excellent  effect  the 
characters  of  the  imprisoned  couple  who  are,  by  sympathy  for  a  sup- 
posed mutual  misfortune,  brought  back  to  love  and  forbearance  towards 
each  other.  In  that  popular  piece  Sweethearts  and  Wives,  Madame 
Vestris,  Mrs.  T.  Hill,  Mr.  Vixing,  and  Mr.  Liston,  as  usual  de- 
lighted the  audience  in  an  extraordinary  degree.  The  last  portion  of 
the  performance  was  the  new  Farce  of  A  Year  in  an  Hour,  in  whieh 
Mr.  Liston  again  kept  up  the  horse-laugh  he  had  so  often  before  raised 
as  Billy  Lackaday. — There  was  a  numerous  audience — This  evening, 
Rosina,  Every  One  has  his  Fault,  and  Fish  oat  of  Water, 

EDrurp  Hane  Cljrarrc. 

Madame  Catalan!  was  here  again  last  night.  It  is  not  adding  to 
her  popularity,  nor  the  interests  of  the  Theatre,  to  make  her  uselessly 
the  cause  of  excluding  the  persons  on  the  free-list. 

Sadler's  Well*. — This  little  Theatre  has  been  well  attended  this 
week,  in  consequence  of  the  numerous  attractive  pieces  that  have 
been  produced. — Messrs.  Lancaster,  Vale,  King,  Miss  Johnstone, 
Miss  Vincent,  &c.  acted  extremely  well. 

Davis's  Amphitheatre — The  splendid  spectacle  of  'I he  Battle  of 
Waterloo,  with  Mons.  Ducrow's  astonishing  horsemanship,  and  the 
melo-drama  of  Agamemnon,  continue  to  draw  excellent  houses.

AV>.  815  Monday,  July  12,  1824.  Pn'^  Irf. 

Cogent  <*Bardcn  €fteatrc. 

In  the  Comedy  of  The  Inconstant,  Mr.  C.  Kemble  acted  Young  Mirabel, 
and  Mr.  W.  Farren  his   fond   Papa,  moat  excellently. 

Theee  was  a  numerous  attendance  here,  on  Saturday  evening  at  The  Maid 
and  the  Magpie,  &c.    The  "  attractive  metal"  abounds  in  this  evening's  bill. 

I^apmarfect  €f)eatte> 

A  Young  Lady,  (name  unknown,)  made  '  her  first  appearance  on  any  stage, 
on  Saturday  night,  as  Rosina,  in  the  musical  piece  so  called.  She  has  quali- 
ties of  voice  that  will,  no  doubt,  render  her  useful  in  some  departments,  but  it 
did  not  appear  that  she  was  equal  to  take  leading  vocal  parts.  Her  first  song 
was  well  executed,  and  encored  ;  but  in  those  of  a  more  difficult  description, 
she  failed  to  give  the  requisite  effect. — The  audience  received  her  ven  favora- 
bly. Mr.  Melrose  sang  very  pleasingly  as  Belville,  and  Mr.  W.  West  and 
Mrs.  C.  Jones,  acted  William  and  Phoebe  very  effectively.  In  Every  One  has 
his  Fault,  there  was  much  excellent  acting  ;  and  Mr.  Liston,  in  Fish  out  of 
Water,  had  the  laugh-raising  power  chiefly  in  his  own  keeping. 

SDrurp  flane  Cfteatm 

The  Hypocrite,  Madame  Catalani,  and  The  Revolt  of  the  Greeks,  were, 
the  stimulants  to  a  considerable  attendance  here  on  Saturday — The  Family  of 
the  late  Mr.  Oxberry  put  in  their  claim  to-uight  to  the  benevolence  of  the 
public. 

The  John   Bull  of  yesterday  has  the  following— "  Speaking  of  Farren, 
whose  Lord  Ogleby  is  excellent,  he  reminds  us  of  a  story  we  rather  believe  we 
once  before  told  in  this  Paper,  but  which  is  so  apposite  as  to  b.ar  repeating — 
we  mean  that  of  a  sign-painter,  who,  by  dint   of  hard  study,  had  attained   to 
the  power  of  painting  a  red  lion ;  and  this  he  would  do  as    well  as   Mr.  Lons- 
dale would  paint  the  Duke  of  Sussex  ;  or  Mr.  Drummond,  Prince  Leopold — 
at  all  events  he  pleased  the  bumpkins,  and  his  lions  were  exceedingly  fine  ;    and 
the  consequence  was,  that  the  leading  inn  or  ale-house  in  every  circum-adjacent 
village,  sported  a  red  lion.     At  length,  however,  a  customer   appeared  in  the 
shape  of  a  publican,  who,  just  establishing  himself,  was  anxious  to   begin  bu- 
siness under  the  sign  of  the   "  Seftons  Head  ;" — "  Don't  do  any  such  thing," 
said  the  painter,  "  there  will  be  no  room  for  the  shoulders."     "  AVell,"  replied 
Boniface,  **  what  do  you  think  of  the  Angel  ?"— "  The  Devil  !"  answered  the 
painter — M  No  :  have  no  such  signs  as  these"---"  What  shall   I  have  V*  asked 
the  inn-keeper— V  Why,"  says   the   painter,  "it  you   ask   my  advice-,  have  a 
Red  Lion  !"— "  No,"  said  the  inn-keeper,  "  I'll  have  no  such  thing  ;  there  are 
Red  Lions  in  every  place  twenty  miles  round— I'll   have  the  Sefton's  Head!" 
"  Well,"  rejoined  the  artist,  "if  you  will,  you  will— but  when  it  is  finished, 
it  will  be  so  like  a  Red  Lion,  you  will   not   know  the  difference."     The  truth 
being,  that  the  only  substitute  the  village  artist  could  make  for   the  noble   Earl 
was  a  Red  Lion  !     So  with  Farren— Lord  Ogleby  is   his   Red  Lion  ;  and  play 
what  he  will— high  life  or   low  life,  serious  or  comic,  he  is  invariably  Lord 
Ogleby.    To  a   theatre,  therefore,  which   can  afford,  as    the   regular   theatres 
can,  to  keep  an  actor,  excellent   in  a  particular  line,  to  play  those  characters 
which  he  plays  admirably.  Farren  is  highly  valuable— at  the  Haymarket  he  is 
not  worth  his  salt ;  and  although  Mr.  Kenny,  who    is   the  best   working  dra- 
matist of  the  day,  and  Mr.  Poole,  (who  is  very  little  his  inferior)  toil  and  la- 
bour day  and  night,  Sundays  and   all— (as  we    suppose  they  do)— in  order    to 
make  new  parts  for  Mr.  Farren,  they  never  will  be   able  to  produce  a  variety, 
for  Red  Lion  he  will  be,  and  nothing  hjtyt  Red  Lion  in  every  character  he  per- 
sonates,"

AV  817  Tuesday,  July  13,  1824.  Price  Id. 

Co  Dent  (SatD.cn  Ctjcatte. 

Mr.  C.  Kemele  and  Miss  F.-H.  Kelly  acted  Romeo  and  Juliet, 
last  night,  with  their  usual  excellence,  Presumption  has  succeeded 
here  in  an  uncommon  degree  ;  although  we  think  modesty  is  as  pre- 
valent in  this  theatre  as  any  one.  This  evening  Mr.  Taylor's  Benefit. 

Miss  Beaumont's  Farewell. — It  is  with  mixed  feelings  of  regret 
and  pleasure,  that  we  find  the  young,  and  amiahle,  and  lovely  Miss 
Beaumont,  after  a  short  theatrical  career,  about  to  quit  the  stage 
for  ever.  Our  regret  is  caused  by  so  soon  losing  a  most  pleasing  and 
rising  actress  ;  our  pleasure  arises  from  the  conception  that  some  event 
(honorable  to  herself)  of  a  nature  calculated  to  render  her  independent 
of  the  labours  of  a  professional  life,  is  about  to  take  place,  if  it  has 
not  already  happened,  We  are  convinced  that  nothing  but  excellent 
motives  have  led  to  this  unlooked  for  circumstance  ;  and  we  shall,  and 
every  one  who  has  learned  Miss  Beaumont's  character,  will,  we  are 
sure,  ever  be  happy  to  hear  of  the  private  comfort  and  happiness  of  a 
young  lady  whose  early  display  of  talent  was  devoted  to  the  most  vir- 
tuous purposes  that  nature  could  prompt. 

SDrurn  Stane  Cfpatrr. 

The  Family  of  the  late  Mr.  Oxberry  had  a  good  house  last  night. 

J^apniar&ct  €fjcatrc* 

A  full  house,  and  much  amusement  last  night. — This  evening  we 
have  Love  Laughs  at  Locksmiths,  Exchange  no  Robbery,  &c. 

Last  night  was  one  of  the  most  distinguished  of  any  for  manv 
seasons  at  this  theatre.  The  Opera  of  Guy  JUannering  was  repre- 
sented in  as  excellent  a  style  as  ever  it  was  at  either  of  the  national 
theatres  ;  and  when  we  say  that  Mr.  Br  a  ham  was  there  a3  Henry 
Bertram,  Miss  Povey,  as  Julia  Mannering,  Mr.  Rayner.  as  Dandie 
Dinmont.  and  Mrs.  Ecerton,  as  Meg  JJerrilies,  we.  only  speak  of 
well  known  first-rate  talent  ;  but  there  Vis  the  debut  of  a  Miss  Noel, 
who  has  for  some  tim^  been  most  justly  a  great  favorite  at  Bath.  She 
appeared  as  Miss  Bertram,  and  made  a  highly  favorable  impression 
on  a  very  impartial  audience.  She  is  in  fact  a  sweet  singer,  very  much 
in  the  style  of  Miss  M.  Tree,  some  of  whose  celebrated  songs  she 
gave  with  the  very  best  effect,  and  had  several  warm  and  justly  me- 
rited encores.  She  has  an  interesting  figure  and  countenance  ;  and 
altogether  we  think  her  a  decided  valuable  acquisition  to  this  theatre, 
Mr.  Power  acted  Col  Mannering  admirably  ;  and  Mr.  Tayleure's 
Dominie  Sampson  was  of  a  nature  to  raise  him  in  the  opinion  of  the 
public.  As  to  Mrs.  Egerton,  she  is  without  doubt,  the  best  M«* 
JKemlies  on  the  stage.—All  were  most  favorably  received,

Ccuent  <£3arfcen  Ctjcatre. 

Mr.  Tavlor  had  his  Benefit  last  night. — There  was  a  good  house. 
Miss  Beaumont,  it  will  be  seen,  bids  adieu  this  evening  to  the  stage. 
This  interesting  young  lady  highly  deserves  the  last  tribute  of  respect 
and  favor  of  the  public.  We  hear  she  is  about  to  be  married  to  a 
Mr.  Owen,  a  gentleman  of  private  worth,  and  good  property. 

<£ngli£f)  Opcra^oiufc 

In  the  musical  drama  of  The  Devil's  Bridge,  Mr.  Braham  made 
his  second  appearance  here  this  season,  in  his  favorite  character  of 
Count  Belino,  and  finely  executed  the  airs  allotted  to  him.  Bliss 
Noel,  also  on  this  occasion,  was  seen  for  the  second  time  by  a  London 
audience,  and  charmingly  acquitted  herself  iw  the  part  of  Rosalvina. 
Miss  Kelly  played  Lauretta  excellently  ;  and  Miss  Povev  as  Claudine, 
sang  very  pleasingly.  Mr.  Bennett,  from  Covent  Garden,  acted 
Marcelli,  but  surely  this  is  not  the  line  of  character  for  which  he  is 
best  qualified. — The  new  Pantomime  followed  and  amused  highly. 

$?apmarftet  Cfjeatre. 

The  performances  of  last  night,  gave  infinite  delight  to  a  numerous 
audience.  We  regret  that  until  after  the  closing  of  the  winter  thea- 
tres, we  cannot  say  every  thing  we  wish  of  these  summer  theatres — 
but  all  in  good  time.  Acted  here  to-night,  Sweethearts  and  Wives, 
Two  Strings  to  your  Bow,  with  Rosina. 

SDrun*  Sane  -Zhtattt. 

Madame  Catalani's  airs  were  resorted  to  last  night  pretty  nu- 
merously. We  did  not  ascertain  the  temperature  of  the  theatre,  but 
imagine  it  must  have  been  at  fever  heat  by  Fahrenheit.  A  sister  of 
Miss  Paton's  is  to  appear  here  to-morrow  as  Letitia  Hardy. 

To  the  Editor  of  The  Theatrical  Observer. 

My  dear  Observer— -You  are  too  much  of  an  optimist. — In  the 
theatrical  trorld  whatever  is — is  not  right.  Could  there  be  a  stronger 
instance  of  this,  than  for  an  actor  to  have  the  assurance  to  invent  a 
cock  and  bull  story  about,  his  pocket  being  picked  of  benefit-tickets, 
merely  to  prevent  some  poor  devils  of  tradesmen  from  selling  the 
tickets  they  had  taken  in  exchange  for  their  butter  or  bacon,  for 
whatever  they  can  get  instead  of  losing  the  whole  amount.  Every 
body  knows  that  a  Benefit  is  seldom  any  thing  but  a  meeting  of  cre- 
ditors ;  and  I  must  say,  therefore,  this  trickery  is  most  unfair;  and 
if  I  see  any  more  of  it,  the  offenders  may  rely  upon  being  shewn  up.

Cotant  <*5arDcn  €fteatre* 

The  performance  at  this  house  last  night  was  for  the  benefit  of 
Miss  Beaumont.  We  understand  the  house  was  full,  and  that  Miss 
Beaumont  was  favorably  received.  The  British  Press  of  this  morn- 
ing, says — "  Mrs. Miller  appeared  for  the  second  time  as  the  Widow 
Brady ;  and  the  spirit  with  which  she  sustained  the  character  fully 
justify  the  remarks  we  made  on  her  debut.  Her  manner  reminded  ns 
very  much  of  Mrs.  Jordan  ;  indeed  we  think  she  comes  nearer  to  her 
than  any  one  now  on  the  stage.  Mrs.  Miller  could  not  have  a  better 
model.  Miss  Lacy  was  exceedingly  affecting  as  Ella  Rosenberg.  Wo 
have  never  seen  the  part  better  acted  ;  and  the  audience  testified  their 
feeling  of  it  by  the  applause  which  they  bestowed. " 

Miss  Harvey  appeared  last  night  as  Rosetta,  in  the  Opera  of  Love 
hi  a  Village.  She  fully  sustained  the  reputation  she  had  acquited  by 
her  foimer  performance  of  Rosina.  In  the  duets  with  Mr.  Braham, 
and  "  Together  let  us  range  the  fields*'  with  Mr.  Philipps,  she  evinced 
a  sedulously-cultivated  taste,  and  displayed  a  brilliancy  of  tones  ex- 
ceedingly pleasing  and  powerful.  Mr.  Philipps  sang  with  much  spirit 
and  effect :  he  was  warmly  applauded  in  the  "  Blooming  Rose,"  which 
is  a  beautiful  piece  of  composition,  musical  as  well  as  poetical.  Mr. 
Braham  sang  as  usual  with  much  unrivalled  excellence. 

J^apmarftet  GLfytattc. 

The  pieces  performed  at  this  Theatre,  last  night,  were  highly  a- 
musing.  In  Rosina,  a  Young  lady,  made  her  second  appearance,  as 
the  facinating  heroine  of  this  pretty  musical  entertainment,  and  wa« 
again  very  favorably  received.  This  evening  She  Stoops  to  Conquer, 
%Mrs.  Smith,  and  Simpson  and  Co.

The  performances  of  last  night,  were  Tivo  Wives,  Madame  Ca- 
talani's  singing,   The  Liar,  and  The  Revolt  of  the  Greeks. 

Sadler's  Wells — The  performances  of  The  Ravois  of  Orleans,  and 
Abdellac  the  Terrific  !  draw  numerous  and  fashionable  audiences. 

A  NEW  TRAGEDY.— Although  Covent  Garden  Theatre  closes  its  season 
on  Saturday  the  17th  instant,  yet  it  is,  we  hear,  to  he  re-opened  on  the  follow- 
ing Monday,  for  the  express  purpos  e  of  presenting  for  the  first  time,  anew 
Tragedy,  which  is,  we  understand,  from  the  pen  of  a  gentleman  of  known 
literary  talent :  and,  further,  we  learn  that  Mr.  H.  Johnson  is  to  appear  in 
this  piece  in  a  principal  character.  Public  curiosity  is  in  no  small  degree  ex- 
cited by  an  event  so  uncommon,  as  an  author  appealing  to  an  audience  in  favor 
of  his  muse,  at  so  unusual  a  period,  and  at  one  of  our  national  theatres. 

A  Report  has  reached  this  office  that  Mr.  Kean  has  broke  a  blood-vessel,  but

Cogent  harden  €t)eatre. 

Mr.  Claremont  and  Mr.  J.  Isaacs,  had  a  numerous  attendance 
last  night  at  their  Benefit. 

The  following  article  was  written  for  yesterday's  number,  but  did 
not  arrive  in  time  at  the  office. — Miss  Beaumont's  "  Farewell  Benefit" 
took  place  last  night,  (Wednesday)  and  was  attended  by  a  most  nu- 
merous and  genteel  audience.  This  young  lady  has  had  but  a  short 
theatrical  career  ;  and  the  excellent  manner  in  which  she  gave  the 
songs  and  acted  the  part  of  Luciana,  in  The  Comedy  of  Errors, 
which  character  she  supported  for  the  first  time,  shewed  what  we 
might  have  expected  from  her  future  performances,  had  she  remained 
on  the  stage.  She  has  now  retired  to  private  life,  where  we  wish  her 
virtues  as  amply  rewarded  as  her  lite  professional  qualities  would 
have  been  had  she  continued  in  her  public  ^sphere  She  bade  adieu  in 
an  interesting  manner,  and  the  audience  appeared  to  feel  regret  on 
the  occasion  ;  for  by  her  retirement,  Coven t  Garden  Theatre  has  lost 
one  of  its  most  pleasing  ornaments. 

We  understand,  from  the  best  authority,  that  the  author  of  the 
new  Tragedy  forthcoming  at  Covent-garden  theatre  on  Monday  next, 
is  Mr.  Penn,  the  lineal  descendant  from  the  celebrated  individul  who 
settled  the  province  in  America  called  Pennsylvania. 

Military  Tactics,  The  Maid  and  the  Magpie,  and  Presumption, 
were  the  entertainments,  and  in  the  course  of  the  evening  there  was  a 
crowded  houpe.  The  first  piece  went  off  very  pleasantly :  and  in  the 
next  one  Miss  Kellx,  as  Annette,  again  gave  the  most  interesting 
effect  to  the  character.  Mr.  T.  P.  Cooke,  as  the  terrific  creation  in 
the  latter  piece,  acted  it  with  all  his  usnal  extraordinary  imprcssive- 
ness  in  the  part. 

Der  Freschutz  is  preparing  rapidly  — It  is  much  talked  of. 

This  mirth-promoting  pleasant  theatre,  afforded,  as  usual,  great 
entertainment  to  a  considerable  audience. — Acted  to-rirght,  a  new 
Comedy,  entitled  Married  and  Single,  with  My  Grandmother,  and 
A  Year  in  an  Hour. 

SDrurp  Hane  C^atre. 

Miss  Isabella  Paton  appeared  on  these  boards  for  the  first  time, 
last  night,  as  Letitia  Hardy,  in  the  Comedy  of  The  Belle's  Strata-

flattering  reception.

*•  Nothing  extenuate  nor  set  down  aught  in  malice." 

No.  S2I  Saturday,  July  17,  1824.  Price  Id. 

After  My  Grandmother ,  last  night,  a  new  three  act  Comedy  was 
performed  for  the  first  time,  called  Married  and  Single.  The  whole 
piece  is  full  of  bustle  and  incident;  which  was  well  supported  by  Mr. 
Farrb\t,  Mr.  Cooper,  Mr.  West,  Mr.  Vining,  Mr.  Lee,  Mrs.  0. 
Jones,  Mrs.  Glover,  Mrs.  T.  Hill,  &c.  It  was  announced  for  this 
evening,  by  Mr.  Farren,  without  a  dissenting  voice.  It  is  by  Mr.  Poole. 

€ngli$}  <©prra4pou£e* 

In  The  Barber  of  Seville,  Miss  Harvey  and  Mr.  Philipps  were  as 
successful  as  before  ;  and  the  whole  Opera  gratified  in  a  high  degiee.

This  Theatre  closes  its  season  to-night  with  Much  Ado  about  No- 
thing, and  Charles  the  Second,  the  former  one  of  the  most  success- 
fully acted  Comedies  of  our  immortal  Bud  that  has  been  presented 
here  of  late.  Mr.  C.  Kemble  and  Miss  Chester  shine  eminently  irt 
the  characters  of  Benedick  and  Beatrice,  and  the  other  parts  are  all 
most  ably  sustained.  That  pleasant  new  production,  Charles  the 
Second,  has  proved  very  attractive.  Mr.  Fawcett  will,  of  course, 
deliver  the  usual  Farewell  Address.  Much  has  been  done  in  this 
theatre  for  the  gratification  of  the  public  ;  and  we  can  say  from  our 
own  observation,  that  if  it  has  not  been  an  eminently  successful 
season,  there  have  been  sufficient  indications  of  a  due  appreciation  on 
the  part  of  the  public,  of  the  exertions  made  for  their  entertainment. 

SDrurp  Hane  €!)catre. 

Miss  L.  Paton  repeated  the  character  of  Letitia  Hardy,  in  the 
Comedy  of  The  Belle's  Stratagem,  with  equal  effect  to  that  of  her 
performance  on  the  previous  night.  We  think  very  favorably  of  tbis 
young  lady's  talents  :  she  has  spirit,  and  a  just  understanding  of 
her  author,  and  very  engaging  personal  qualities  :  but  she  retains  a 
little  of  the  northern  accent,  that  should  be  got  rid  of  as  much  as 
possible  to  fit  her  thoroughly  for  the  English  stage.  We  have  uo 
doubt  that  Miss  L.  Paton  will  become  a  favoiite  with  the  public. — 
She  is,  we  believe,  only  17  or  18  years  of  age.  Her  sister,  our  fa- 
vorite vocalist,  resumes  her  statiou  very  shortly  at  the  Haymarket 
Theatre.  There  are  rumours  respecting  this  latter  young  lady's  pri- 
vate conduct,  which  we  should  deeply  lament  were  they  true — but, 
they  are  false,  the  public  may  rely  on  it.  We  have  from  the  very 
commencement  of  Miss  Paton's-  career  down  to  the  present  moment, 
closely  regarded  her  behaviour,  and  we  have  the  best  reason  for  con* 
eluding  that  she  is  in  every  respect  a  young  lady  as  amiable  as  she  ii 
highly  gifted  in  respect  to  talent.

The  Opera  of  Gup  Manner  in  g  was  performed  at  this  Theatre,  en 
Saturday  evening.  Miss  Noel  sustained  the  part  of  Lucy  Bertram 
with  moch  talent,  and  was  loudly  and  deservedly  encored  in  the  beau- 
tiful long  "  Home,  Sweet  Home."  The  performance  of  Mrs.  Eobrtox, 
as  Meg  Merrilies,  is  always  excellent  and  effective.  Mr.  Br a ham 
jnng  almost  divinely,  and  was  encored,  in  the  song  that  never  misers 
an  encore,  "  Scots' wha'  ha-'e  wi'  Wallace  bled."  The  amusements  of 
the  evening  gave  very  great  and  general  satisfaction.

This  Theatre  closed  its  season  on  Saturday  to  a  numerous  audi- 
•ace,  with  Shakspeare's  fine  Comedy  of  Much  Ado  about  JVoViing, 
which  was,  in  general,  admirably  acted,  particularly  in  the  parts  of 
Benedick  and  Beatrice,  by  Mr.  C.  Kemble,  and  Miss  Chester.  Afc 
the  conclusion  of  the  Comedy,  Mr.  Fawcett  appeared,  and  delivered 
the  following  Farewell  Address. 

■'  Ladies  and  Gentlemen — Our  season  closing  with  the  representation*  of 
this  evening,  I  come,  on  the  part  of  th«  Proprietors,  to  ofl\?r  you  their  sincere 
thanks  for  the  distinguished  patronage  with  which  yoa  have  honored  this  The- 
»tr».  The  new  embellishments  I  am  happy  to  a&\, ,  have  given  universal  satis- 
faction. Our  success  iu  the  attempt  to  revive  a  taste  for  comedy  has  answered 
•ur  most  sanguine  expectations,  while  our  efforts  to  give  additional  effect  to  ths 
plays  of  Shakepeare  must,  we  trust,  have  convinced  you  of  our  love  and  renar- 
tion  for  the  greatest  dramatic  poet  that  ever  charmed  or  instructed  mankind. 

"  In  short,  when  I  call  to  your  recellection,  that  we  have,  in  the  course  of 

the  present  season,  produced  thirteen  new  pieces,  besides  many  revivals,  I  truat 

you  will  allow  that  neither  pains  nor  expense  have  been  spared,  to  make  the  en* 

tertainmentg  of  Covent  Garden  Theatre  worthy  of  the  greatest  nation  in  th» 

world. 

44  It  only  remains  to  assure  you,  that  the  vacation  will  be  entirely  devoted  t*> 
your  future  entertainments  and  convenience,  and  that  no  efforts  will  be  spared 
to  ensure  a  continuance  of  your  favour.  And  now,  Ladies  and  Gentlemen,  on 
the  part  of  tha  Proprietors,  of  myself,  and  all  the  other  performers,  until  the 
37th  of  September,  I  most  respectfully  bid  you  farewell."

This  Theatre  was  respectably  attended  last  night,  to  sec  Military 
Tactics,  the  Miller's  Maid,  and  Presumption.  In  the  latter  piece, 
Mr.  Bennett  and  Mr.  T.  P,  Cooke,  acted  uncommonly  well.

A  Benefit  was  taken  at  this  Theatre  last  night,  by  Mr.  Mears 
and  Mr.  Smithson,  on  which  occasion  Mr.  Penn's  Historical  Tragedy 
of  the  Battle  of  Eddington,  was  represented.  This  Piece  was  written 
aud  published  in  the  year  1706,  and  although  it  was  axted,  it  does 
not  appear  that  it  was  stamped  with  any  marks  of  popularity.  The 
performance  of  last  night  was  hardly  to  be  considered  as  offering  a 
lair  criterion  of  its  merits  as  a  stage  piece,  because  many  of  the  per- 
formers were  apparently  r.ot  of  the  first  order  of  actors. — It  was  re- 
ceived with  a  deal  of  good  humor. — The  house  was  nearly  full. 

JJapmatfeet  €t)eatre. 

The  new  Comedy,  and  Sweethearts  and  Wives,  drew  an  excellent 
house,  last  night.  In  the  former  piece,  Mr.  W.  Farren,  as  the  old 
beau,  was  very  good ;  the  other  characters  were  equally  well  sustain- 
ed. Mr.  Liston,  Miss  Chester,  and  Madame  Vestris,  were  much 
applauded  in  the  latter  piece. 

That  delightful  vocalist,  Miss  Paton,  makes  her  first  appearance 
this  season,  to-night,  as  Susanna,  in  the  Marriage  of  Figaro. 

SDrurp  %ant  theatre. 

She  Stoops  to  Conquer  was  performed  last  night,  with  the  novelty 
of  Miss  Isabella  Paton,  as  Miss  Hardcastle,  and  Mr.  Harley,  as 
Tony  Lumpkin,  each  for  the  first  time.  Miss  I.  Paton  further  proved 
her  claims  to  notice  by  her  acting  on  this  occasion,  which  was  marked 
by  many  of  those  points  of  excellence  which  her  instructress,  Mrs. 
Davison,  was  accustomed  to  display.  She  was  very  favorably  re- 
ceived ;  as  was  Mr.  Harley,  in  Tony,  which  part  he  represented 
with  an  unceasing  strain  of  humor  ;  and  afterwards  in  the  comic  piece 
of  Two  Wives,  he  sustained  the  various  assumed  characters  with  a 
flow  of  fun  that  kept  tne  house  in  continued  mirth.  Miss  S.  Booth, 
in  the  Falls  of  Clyde,  and  also   Mr.  Knight  and  Mr.  Archer,  most 

ably  acted  their  several  parts.     This  house  closes  on  Monday  next.

*'  Nothing  extenuate  nor  set  down  aught  in  malice." 

No.  824  Wednesday,  Jidy2\,  1824.         Price  Id. 

<£ngiigt)  <©pera^ou£u 

Last  night,  in  Military  Tactics,  Mr.  Bartley,  Mr.  Power,  Mr. 
Pearman,  and  Miss  Povey,  were  very  amusing  ;  after  which,  the 
comic  hurletta  of  Free  and  Easy  was  performed,  in  which  Mr.  Ray- 
ner  appeared  as  Ralph,  and  Mr.  W.  Chapman,  as  Michael,  each  for 
the  first  time,  and  acquitted  themselves  with  great  credit.  The  other 
characters  were  supported  in  a  most  effective  manner,  particularly 
that  of  Sir  John  Freeman,  hy  Mr-  Wrench,  and  Gertrude,  hy 
Miss  Kelly. 

The  Pantomime  concluded  the  evening's  amusements;  its  success  is 
entirely  owing  to  the  great  exertions  of  Messrs.  J  S.  Grimaldt,  Barnes, 
Ellar,  and  Miss  Romer. —  The  house  was  respectahly  filled. 

DER  FREISCHUTZ. 

A  short  detail  of  ihc  Plot  of  this  eclehrated  German  Opera,  may 
not  he  uninteresting  to  our  readers.  It  is  be  found  in  the  third  vo- 
lume of  a  work,  entitled  "  Popular  Traditions  of  the  Northern  Na- 
tions'' where  it  is  given  under  the  name  of  the  "  Fatal  Marksman." 
The  main  incident  relates  to  a  well  known  German  supersition,  ic- 
specting  the  interference  of  infernal  agency  in  the  preparation  of  un- 
erring bullets  ;  and  the  fatal  issue  of  a  contest  for  the  love  of  a  fair 
Bohemian  peasant,  whose  admirer  makes  use  of  them  at  a  required 
trial  of  skill,  in  which  her  hand,  and  the  ranger  ship  of  the  forest,  is 
the  destined  prize.  The  scene,  where  the  bullets  are  cast,  is  said  to 
be  replete  with  mystic  horrors,  and  something  very  extraordinary, 
both  in  music  and  scenic  effect,  may  be  expected.  Indeed,  the  whole 
of  the  music  is  of  the  most  superior  description,  and  has  rendered 
this  Opera  very  popular  in  Germany  and  Holland. 

The  English  Opera-House  is  closed  this  evening,  for  the  purpose 
of  obtaining  a  JSTight  Rehearsal,  without  which,  it  would  have  been 
next  to  impossible  for  the  Opera  to  be  produced  on  Thursday  evening.

Married  and  Single  was  repeated  here  last  night,  to  a  full  house 
in  all  parts.  This  Comedy  is  rendered  very  pleasing,  owing  to  the 
excellent  acting  of  the  gentlemen  and  ladies  representing  the  different 
characters.     Mr.  W.  Farren's  Ueau  Shatterhj,  is  an  excellent  repre-

sentation  ;  Mr.  W.  West's  Ferret  deserves  much  praise  ;  as  does 
Mr.  Cooper's  JWilford.  Scamper,  by  Mr.  Vining,  and  Capt.  &  Rapper  t 
by  Mr.  Lee,  are  rendered  very  amusing  by  those  gentlemen.  Mrs. 
Glover,  Airs.  T.  Hill,  Mrs.  Jones,  and  Mrs.  Covenev,  had  their 
share  of  applause. 

The  Marriage  of  Figaro  followed,  and  introduced  Mr.  Wilkinson, 
for  the  first  time,  in  the  character  of  Antonio  ;  he  was  very  well  re- 
received.  Miss  Paton  also  made  her  debut  this  season  as  Susanna. 
She  sang  delightfully,  and  was  highly  applauded,  particularly  in  f  Lo, 
Hear  the  Gentle  Lark  !" 

A  new  Comic  Opera  is  in  rehearsal,  and  will  be  produced  as  soon 
as  possible.

The  very  plesant  Comedy  of  The  Poor  Gentleman  was  acted  here 
last  night.  This  Play  does  great  credit  to  its  author,  Mr.  Colman, 
who  has  kindled  by  the  effect  of  some  of  his  chaiacters  in  it,  a  genial 
feeling,  and  raised  an  agreeable  tone  of  mind  that  suit  well  our  En- 
glish turn,  which  loves  the  honest  and  frank  expression  of  the  dictates 
of  the  heart,  and  the  pervading  good  humor  of  honesty  and  indepen- 
dence. There  is  no  author,  living  or  dead,  who  has  written  so  pe- 
culiarly home  (excuse  the  expression)  to  our  national  impressions  and 
character  as  George  Colman,  the  Younger;  and  so  long  as  he  ad- 
hered to  the  comic  vein,  we  have  admired  the  productions  of  his  pen 
as  transcendently  calculated  to  enliven  and  improve.  On  the  present 
occasion  Mr.  Dowton  played  Sir  Robert  Bramble ;  if  we  could  forget 
Mr.  Munden,  we  would  say  he  acted  it  well;  but  Mr.  Dowton  cannot 
convey  the  peculiar  turn  of  Sir  Robert's  character,  within  the  unctuous 
humor  of  his  predecessor*  There  was  much  to  admire  in  the  manner 
in  which  the  whole  Comedy  was  performed,  particularly  in  Mr.  Ellis- 
ton's  Frederick,  Mr.  Harley's  Ollapod,  and  Mr.  Knight's  Stephen 
Harrowby. 

Mathews,  we  understand,  has  announced  his  intention  of  being 
"  At  Home"  on  Friday  and  Saturday  next,  at  Brighton.  Every  place 
in  the  Theatre,  that  could  be  taken,  is  bespoke. — British  Press.

SDcurp  Sane  Cijcatre. 

The  Hypocrite  has  stood  its  ground  well,  it  was  again  acted  last 
night,  and  again  Mr.  Dowton  gave  a  most  striking  representation  of 
the  artful  villain,  who,  under  a  sanctified  exterior,  conceals  the 
blackest  heart  a  human  being  ever  possessed.  We  have  frequently 
observed,  and  again  repeat  it,  that  this  Play  does  serious  injury  to 
the  cause  of  religion. 

Bliss  I.  Paton,  takes  a  Benefit  at  this  Theatre  on  Monday  next, 
when  The  Country  Girl,  a  Masqurade ,  and  other  entertainments  will 
be  performed. 

I^ap^marfcct  €$catte. 

Whilst  light  humor  is  the  pervading  character  of  the  pieces  pro- 
duced here,  its  reputation  derived  from  the  olden  time,  is  sustained, 
and  we  revisit  it  with  a  smile.  Last  night  the  entertainments  were 
Married  and  Single,  with  the  Opera  of  The  Lord  of  the  Manor. — 
On  our  arrival  at  the  door,  we  found  a  notice  posted,  stating  the  sud- 
den indisposition  of  Mr.  Liston,  and  that  Mr.  Wilkinson,  had,  at  a 
short  notice,  undertaken  to  perform  the  part  of  Moll  Flaggon,  and 
"  hoped,  that  he  should  meet  with  that  indulgence  which  had  hitherto 
been  granted  on  such  occasions."  The  new  Comedy  wa3  most  flatter- 
ingly received  by  a  full  house.  In  the  Opera,  Mr.  Melrose,  in  the 
song  of  The  Beautiful  Maid,  met  some  slight  opposition.  Madame 
Vestri3  was  encored  in  "  Once  a  Maiden  Spring  Roses  was  Wear- 
ing" "  <A  Knight,  Oh,  my  Story  is  True,'*  and  "  The  Dashing  white 
Serjeant.'*  On  the  appearance  of  Mr.  Wilkinson,  as  Moll,  he  was 
met  by  the  audience  in  the  most  unfriendly  manner. — He  bowed,  they 
called  "  Liston  !  Off !  off !"  Mr.  Vining  advanced,  and  in  a  neat  man- 
ner explained  the  cause  of  Mr.  Liston's  absence.  The  piece  proceed- 
ed without  further  opposition.

In  consequence  of  the  extensive  preparations  making  for  the  pro- 
duction to-night  of  the  Gjermau  Opera  of  Der  Freischutz,  for  the

The  German  Opera  of  Der  Freischutz  ;  or,  the  Seventh  Bullet  f 
*»■  produced  in  this  country  for  the  first  time  last  night,  at  this 
theatre.  It  is  of  a  highly  melo-drainatic  character,  as  the  following 
outline  of  the  Story  will  shew  : — Casper  and  Rodolph  are  two  hunts- 
men in  the  service  of  Ottocar,  a  Bohemian  Prince.  These  young  men 
are  livals  in  the  regard  of  their  master,  and  Casper  has  a  further 
canse  of  hatred  for  Rodolph,  arising  from  his  being  beloved  by  Agnes, 
a  fair  maiden  of  the  village.  The  former  to  gratify  his  bad  disposi- 
tion, has  devoted  himself  to  Zamiel,  the  Daemon  of  the  Wood,  who 
has  supplied  him  with  charmed  bullets  that  always  hit  the  mark  ;  and 
also  thro'  the  Daemon's  aid,  obtains  the  destruction  of  Rodolph's  fame 
as  a  marksman,  whose  rifle  is  constantly  unsuccessful.  An  institution 
has  been  formed  in  the  village  by  the  Prince,  that  once  a  year  a  Trial 
Shot  should  take  place,  and  the  victor  be  rewarded  with  the  maiden 
he  loves,  and  a  portion.  From  the  recent  bad  fortune  he  has  had 
with  his  rifle,  Rodolph  dreads  the  trial  which  is  to  take  place  on  the 
following  day,  and  looks  forward  with  grief  to  the  loss  of  his  Jlgnes. 
Casper  eager  to  destroy  his  rival,  and  sacrifice  him  to  the  Daemon,  in 
order  to  save  himself,  works  upon  his  passion  for  this  girl,  so  as  to 
draw  him  into  an  impious  reliance  on  preternatural  means  for  attain* 
ing  his  wishes.  He  induces,  Rodolph,  to  join  him  in  the  Damon's 
haunt,  and  by  magic  spells  to  obtain  the  charmed  bullets.  Seven  is  the 
number  granted  by  the  evil  spirit,  three  of  which  Casper  retains,  and 
gives  the  other  four  to  Rodolph.  The  Prince  having  commanded  the 
latter  to  fire  frequently  in  a  subsequent  cbace,  he  has  only  the  seventh 
Bullet  left,  and  dreadi  lest  he  should  lose  that  before  the  hour  of  the 
trial  of  skill.  At  last,  however,  that  period  arrives,  and  the  seventh 
Bullet  remains  in  Rodolph's  possession,  but  Casper  thinking  Rodolph 
has  fired  away  all  his  charmed  bullets,  is  preparing  for  a  triumph  be- 
fore Agnes  and  the  whole,  and  strays  about  looking  for  her  arrival  at 
the  moment  Rodolph  aims  at  the  bird  pointed  out — Kodolph  fires,  bat 
the  bullet  instead  of  hitting  the  bird,  pierces  Casper,  who,  falling,  Is 
received  by  the  Daemon  as  his  victim  by  agreement,  and  is  borne  off 
amidst  a  shower  of  fire;  whilst  the  villagers,  nothing  daunted,  ad- 
vance and  surround  their  Prince,  who  gives  the  fair  Agnes  to  her 
lover  Rodolph.  A  most  crowded  and  genteel  audience  received  the 
whole  with  very  animated  applause.— The  music  is  beautiful. 

Haymakket — There  was  a  good  house  last  night,  to  Bee  Jl  Day 
after  the  JVedding,  Married  and  Single,  and  The  Beggar's  Opera. 

Drury  Lane — The  Dramatist,  a  Pastoral  Ballet,  and  The  Citizen,

After  the  amusing  little  piece  of  Jlfrs.  S?mth,  the  new  three-act 
Comedy  of  Jlarried  and  Single  was  repeated,  and  amused  in  a  con- 
siderable degree.  Mr.  W.  Farren  acts  the  old  Beau  very  humo- 
rously, and  looks  the  would-be  young  fool  excellently.  In  Mrs,  C. 
Jones  be  has  a  rib  of  no  common  capacity  ;  and  in  Mr.  Cooper  a 
nephew  that  may  well  put  his  claims  on  the  right  side  of  his  grand 
climateric,  to  the  route.-  Mr.  W.  West,  in  Ferret,  looks  very  like 
some  of  those  young  Attornies,  who  are  to  be  met  with  at  certaiu 
busy  times  in  Peele's  coffee-house.  Ke  has  all  their  pertness,  self- 
sufficiency,  and  affectation.  He  seems  as  if  he  were  bred  and  born, 
and  educated  in  the  purlieus  of  Lyon's-Inn.  In  short,  we  thought  we 
perceived  a  qualm  come  over  some  young  fashionables,  who  possibly 
were  put  in  mind  of  Mr.  Snipp's  bill  up  to  midsummer,  and  other 
horrible  things. 

<£ngli$)  <9pcra#ou0\\ 

This  house  is  the  chosen  region  of  the  romantic.  The  Vampire, 
if  we  recollect  right,  was  the  first  of  a  species  of  drama  produced 
here,  which  has  since  become  periodical  Frankenstein  partook  of 
the  same  wild  and  original  character,  and  now  we  have  Der  Frei- 
schutz,  which  surpasses  both  in  novelty.  The  music,  alone,  is  suffi- 
cient to  render  it  popular.  We  would  advise  the  dramatist  to  do  Mr. 
Coleridge's  Christabelle  into  a  melo-drama  :  the  difficulty  would  be 
in  getting  an  adequate  representative  for  the  immortal  "  mastiff  bitch," 
otherwise  this  "  wild  and  singularly,  original,  and  beautiful  poem/' 
according  to  poor  Lord  Byron,  would  give  full  scope  to  the  exercise 
of  Mr.  T.  P.  Cooke's  talents.  If  we  might  hint  at  improvement  in 
Der  Freischnts,  Ave  think  the  conclusion  is  exceedingly  abrupt. — 
After  the  Daemon  walks  off  with  Caspar,  the  rest  of  the  dramatis 
persona?  join  hands  and  begin  singing  with  the  greatest  composure  : 
there  should  be  some  intervening  business.  We  had  the  pleasure  of 
noticing  Her  Royal  Highness,  the  Duchess  of  Kent,  in  a  private  box, 
though  incog  ;  Lady  Guilford,  Lady  Beauchamp,  Sir  W.  Congreve  ; 
and  large  parties  of  persons  of  distinction,  both  English  and  German, 
filled  the  boxes.

lnThe  Belle's  Stratagem,  Mr.  Ellistovs  Boricourt,  Mr.  Dowton's 
Old  Hardy,  and  Miss  Isabella  Paton's  Letitia  Hardy,  were  emi- 
nently successful.  The  Ballet  was  much  admired,  and  Air.  IJarley, 
as  Popolino,   in  The  Sleeping  Draught,  amused  highly.

The  continued  attraction  of  the  Opera  of  Dcr  Freticftutz,  Vvas 
evinced  on  Saturday  evening  bv  the  coucourse  of  persons  assembled  at 
an  early  hour,  at  all  the  dcors.  This  piece  is  to  be  viewed  more  as  a 
vehicle  for  music,  than  as  a  drama  of  much  interest,  although  theic 
is  a  terrific  character  about  it  that  may  absorb  attention  in  a  high  de- 
gree. The  scene  of  The  Wolfs  Glen,'by  Moonlight,  and  the  horrors 
there  exhibited,  are  calculated  to  impress  the  mind  with  a  complete 
idea  of  the  whole  art  and  mystery  of  Daemon-raising.  A  reference  to 
the  description  in  the  play-bill  of  this  scene,  will  shew  how  the  ele- 
ments themselves,  and  ail  the  other  resources  of  witchery,  are  brought 
to  assist  in  this  extraordinary  scene.  Pieces  of  the  most  delightful 
harmony  are  scattered  through  this  Opera;  and  it,  altogether,  is  a 
most  peculiar  performance.  Military  Tactics  followed,  and  amused 
much. 

SDi'tiru  %ant  Cftcatrc. 

That  admirable  vocalist,  Madame  Catalani,  took  a  Benefit  here 
on  Saturday  night,  which  was  attended  by  a  very  numerous  and  gen- 
teel company. 

This  evening  the  Theatre  closes  a  season  prolonged  to  an  unusual 
period — a  season,  of  which  Mr.  Ellisto.v  can  truly  say,  he  has  had 
throughout  the  greater  part,  distinguished  patronage.  On  this  occa- 
sion f%Jiss  Isabella  Paton  takes  hetjirst  Benefit  since  her  appearance 
on  the  stage.  Her  success  as  a  comic  actress,  has  been  eminent  in 
the  few  characters  which  she  has  yet  riifdxrr taken  ;  and  her  youth  and 
talents  give  token  of  a  long  and  Brilliant  career.  She  plays  to-night 
a  character  in  which" she  has  not  been  seen,  and  it  is  one  that  is  cal- 
culated to  display  her  in  a  very  favourable  point  of  view. 

The   performances  here  on  Saturday  evening,    were  i/tfarried  and 

Single,  Loch  and'Key,  and  Katharine  ahd  Petruchio.  In  the  last 
piece,  Miss  Chester  and  Mr.  Cooper  sustained  the  characters  of 
saucy  Kate,  and  the  bold  Petruchio,  with  great  spirit  and  effect. — 
The  house  was  well  attended. 

Sadler's  Wells. — This  Theatre  has  fallen  into  the  hands  of  Mr. 
Grimaldi  and  Mr.  Hughes,  who  open  it  this  evening. — It  is  thus  likely 
to  become  again  a  favorite  place  of  resort. 

Vauxhall.- — These  enchanting  Gardens  are  to  be  open  to-ni^ht.— • 
The  weather  is  must  propitious.

No  829  Tuesday,  July  27 ,  1824.  Price  U. 


Zterc  Freischutz  is  the  subject  of  general  conversation.  One  loun* 
ger  asks  another,  "  Have  you  seen  that  singular  affair  at  the  English 
Opera-House  V — "  Oh,  do  Pa,  let  us  go  and  sec  Friz — Friz— what 
do  you  call  it  V  says  City  Mies.— — "  Lard,  now,  I  vondcr  vhat 
that  'ere  thingumbob  queer  Hoperer  is  all  about,"  exclaims  a  Wapping 
land-lady.  In  short,  from  St  James's  to  St.  Catherine's,  you  will  hear 
it  spoken  of.  Such  is  the  influence  of  music,  and--cw7  spirits !  The 
last  scene  of  this  piece  is  wonderfully  improved.  We  noticed  in  the 
private  boxes,  the  Earl  of  Craven,  Lady  Scott  Douglas,  Mr.  Secretary 
Peel,  Mrs.  Peel ;  and  in  the  dress-circle,  which  was  crowded  with 
fashionably  attired  females,  Lady  Morres  Gore,  Lady  Bernard,  Lady 
Ravensworth,  Lord  Radstock,  Countess  Mangden,  Col.  Vaughan,  Mr. 
Calcraft,  M.  P.  Mr.  P.  Grenfell,  M.  P.  and  numerous  other  distin- 
guished parties  which  we  cannot  particularise.  The  Overtinc,  and 
one  of  Mr.  Braham's  eongs,  were  encored— The  house  was  filled  in 
every  part. 

There  was  a  very  crowded  house  last  night,  to  see  Twelve  Pre* 
cisely,  Married  and  Single,  and  Sweethearts  and  Wives.  The  se- 
cond piece  ought  to  have  been  compressed  to  two  acts.— -The  audience 
seemed  to  be  highly  entertained. 


2)rucp  Hane  €l)eatre. 

This  Theatre  concluded  its  season,  last  night,  with  the  Comedy  of 
Know  your  Own  Mind,  the  Farce  of  Turn  Out,  and  a  Masquerade. 
The  play-bills  announced  that  these  performances  were  for  the  Benefit 
of  Miss  Isabella  Paton,  but  they  were  foi  the  joint  Benefit  of  that 
young  lady  and  the  Proprietor.  The  house  filled  very  well  in  the  course 
of  the  evening,  and  much  amusement  was  derived  from  the  various  en- 
tertainments. Miss  I.  Paton  represented  Lady  Ball,  and  exhibited  a 
just  conception  of  the  character,  with  a  considerable  felicity  of  exe- 
cution. It  is  a  part  that  requires  a  perpetual  flow  of  spirits,  and  a 
pointed  style  of  delivery  and  manner,  and  these  requisites  Miss  I. 
Paton  put  forth  in  a  manner  that  frequently  elicited  animated  applause, 
and  she  sang  an  air  with  ao  much  taste  as  to  merit  the  warm  encore 
she  received.  This  young  lady  gives  promise  of  being  a  permanent 
favorite  of  the  public  ;  and  more   particularly  pos  because  she  ever

seems  absorbed  in  her  character,  without  any  thought  of  self  breaking 
out  through  her  style.  No  one  can  he  a  good  actor  or  actress,  with- 
out possessing  this  entire  abstraction  from  every  thing  bat  the  cha- 
racter filled.  Let  Miss  I.  Patox  continue  closely  to  follow  the  rules 
which  her  admirable  instructor,  Mr.  Chapman,  has  laid  down,  and 
there  is  no  fear  of  her  entire  success.  In  the  Farce,  Miss  S.  Booth, 
Mr.  Dowton,  Mr.  Harley,  and  Mr.  Knight,  amused  greatly.  The 
Masquerade  was  well  enough — there  were  some  pleasant  songs.  Mr. 
Harley  was  encored  in  "  The  Humours  of  JMoulsey  Hurst"  Miss 
Paton  walked  the  minuet  do  la  cour  with  Mr.  Noble,  with  the  utmost 
grace  and  elegance. 

■Mr.  Ellistox  appeared  between  the  Comedy  and  Farce,  and  spoke 
the  following  Address. 

Ladies  and  Gentle: en, 

I  cannot  allow  flue  present  opportunity  to  pass  without  again 
congratulating  you  and  myself  on  the  prosperous  state  of  the  ailairs 
of  this  Theatre.  Instead  of  having  added  to  the  debts  of  the  Thea- 
tre, by  your  kindness,  means  have  been  found  materially  to  reduce  the 
old  debts.... I  hope  I  am  sufficiently  well  known  to  the  public,  my  ge- 
nerous patrons,  to  be  believed,  when  I  state,  that  under  these  cir- 
cumstances, I  shall  not  fail  to  revive  pieces  which  are  established  fa- 
vorites, and  also  to  introduce  to  your  notice  others  unknown  to  you, 
but  worthy  of  your  patronage.  I  hope,  Ladies  and  Gentlemen,  by 
next  September,  to  offer  to  you  several  new  pieces  worthy  of  you  and 
this  great  national  Theatre.  Ladies  and  Gentlemen,  I  have  the  ho- 
nour to  offer  you  all  my  most  hearty  thanks  for  your  kindness,  and  to 
bid  you  a  most  affectionate  farewell." 

On  Sunday,  Mr.  Kean  left  town,  In  his  travelling  carriage,  accom- 
panied by  Mr.  R.  Phillips,  for  Holyhead ;  from  thence  he  proceeds  to 
Dublin. 

Mr.  Macready,  has,  it  is  said,  been  engaged  by  Mr.  M'Donnell  to 
perform  a  certain  number  of  nights  at  the  Cork  theatre  ;  he  is  to  ap- 
pear during  the  assizes. 

TO  CORRESPONDENTS. 

We  have  to  apologise  to  many  friends,  whose  favors  we  have  been  unable  to 
insert  or  notice,  from  so  many  Theatres  being-  open  at  one  time.  We  shall 
soon  be  at  liberty  to  attend  to  all  our  Correspondents ,  but  we  particularly  re- 
quest that  their  letters  may  be  temperate  and  brief.

degiee,  the  Farce  of  Gretna  Green  was  performed  in  the  most  amus- 
ing manner.  The  acting  of  Miss  Kelly  and  Mr.  Wrench,  as  Betty 
Finikin  and  Mr.  Jenkins,  is  inimitable,  and  they  were  laughed  at 
and  applauded  *  to  the  very  echo.'— The  house  was  crowded  to  excess.

The  varied  and  amusing  character  of  the  performances  at  this 
house,  ensure  it  a  high  degiee  of  favor  from  the  lovers  of  mirth.— 
The  musical  Farce  of  The  Padlock  was  the  first  piece,  in  which  that 
charming  vocalist,  Miss  Paton,  sang  in  the*  most  delightful  manner. 
Miss  Love,  also,  although  turned  into  a  little  male  creature,  lost  hut 
few  of  her  attractions.  Mr.  Williams  made  a  good  Diego,  and  Mr. 
West  was  a  clever  JUungo.  Mr.  Harley  in  the  following  piece  of 
The  Young  Quaker,  appeared  here  for  the  first  time  this  season,  as 
Spatterdash,  and  was  received  in  the  way  he  ever  is,  most  cordially. 
The  whole  of  this  piece  was  well  performed,  particularly  by  Mr.  Vi- 
KtNG,  Mr.  Farren,  Mr.  Harley,  and  Miss  Chester.  The  Two 
Pages  of  Frederick  the  Great  was  the  last  on  the  list,  and  was  admi- 
rably acted. — There  was  a  numerous  audience. 

A  new  Comic  Opera  is  in  preparation. 

Signor  Rossini  quitted  London  on  Monday  night,  on  his  way  to  the 
Continent.  He,  with  a  party  of  friends,  sat  down  to  a  farewell  din- 
ner ;  but  behold  !  an  unexpected  guest  made  his  appearance,  insti- 
gated by  one  of  those  vulgar  creatures  called  <rreditore,  who,  it  ap- 
peared, had  no  soul  for  music,  and  chose  that  unlucky  hour  to  press 
a  disputed  debt — il  maestro  paused,  on  one  side  he  felt  inclined  to  re- 
sist, give  bail,  &c.  ;  on  the  other,  the  dinner  fumes  titilated  his  ol- 
factory nerves — unable  to  resist,  the  disputed  claim  was  discharged, 
harmony  restored,  and  il  maestro  again  looked  gay,  and  mirth  and 
hilarity  reigned  until  the  hour  of  parting. 

The  young  lady  known  to  the  public  as  Miss  Beaumont,  who  re- 
cently bade  farewell  at  Covent  Garden  Theatre,  was  married  on  Sa- 
turday last  to  Mr.  George  Owen,  of  the  Secretary's  Office,  East 
India  House.  The  young  lady  is  the  youngest  daughter  of  the  late 
Dr.  Browne,  of  Trinity  College,  Dublin.

Mathews  was  "  At  Home,"  at  the  Theatre  on  Thursday  and  Saturday 
evenings. — The  house  on  each  occasion  was  pretty  well  crowded.  On 
these  nights  his  songs  were  accompanied  by  a  full  orchestra,  and  the 
effect  produced  was  so  superior  to  the  accompaniment  of  a  single  piano- 
forte, that  it  is  to  be  hoped  he  will  always  have  a  band  for  the  future 
in  his  highly  comic  entertainments.

To  the  Editor  of  The  Theatrieal  Observer. 

Mr.  Editor, 

I  am  extremely  sorry  to  trouble  you,  but  perhaps  you 
can  explain  to  me  whether  a  new  performer,  who  makes  a  first  appear- 
ance in  a  new  character,  has  not  a  right,  from  general  usage,  certain 
number  of  orders  ;  if  so,  I  am  sorry  to  say,  our  summer  theatres  have 
departed  from  the  custom.

Every  body  will  go  and  see  Der  I* jieischutz,  once; — almost 
every  body  will  go  at  second  time — to  be  again  delighted  with  the 
music,  and  re-horrified  with  the  incantation.  The  whole  scene  is  now 
most  appalling  and  interesting,  the  ravens  and  bats  flit  about  dis- 
mally.  The  wild  chace  in  the  air,  with  the  skeleton  horsemen,  &c. 
are  powerfully  effective.  The  whole  arrangement  of  1  he  casting  the 
charmed  balls,  is  decidedly  the  ne  plus  ultra  of  the  terrific.  We 
saw  Lord  Uxbridgo,  the  Countess  of  Guilford,  (a  2nd  time,)  Ladies 
Acton,  Berwick,  Granville  Somerset,  Cockburn,  Sheffield,  Honora- 
ble Mrs.  JH ope,  Hon.  Mrs.  Knight,  Hon.  Mr*.  Herbert,  Sir  Lewis 
Miller,  Cavendish  Bradshaw  Esq.  Sir  George  Barclay,  and 'numerous 
other  parties  of  the  first  distinction  :  and  all  assembled  at  the  early 
hour  of  seven,  to  hear  the  celebrated  Overture. 

J^ap^marftet  €$catra. 

Last  night,  The  Beggar's  Opera,  Killing  710  Murder,  and  Mar- 
ried  and  Single,  were  the  announced  pieces.  Miss  Patox,  however, 
who  was  to  have  played  Polly,  in  the  Opera,  could  not  appear  in  con- 
sequence of  indisposition,  and  Mr.  T.  Dibden*  in  making  the  apology, 
and  proposing  other  performances,  found  the  audience  very  much  dis- 
satisfied— so  much  so,  that  the  representation  of  The  Beggar's 
Opera  was  obliged  to  take  place,  as  they  would  not  be  disappointed 
by  not  having  the  pleasure  to  see  Madame  Vestris.  Mrs.  T.Hill 
undertook  Miss  Paton's  part,  and  sang  some  of  the  airs  pretty  well, 
and  altogether  deserved  much  praise  for  her  readiness  and  desire  to 
please.  Madame  Vesthis  looked  as  engaging  as  her  masculine  attire 
wotld  permit  her,  and  sang  charmingly,  but  not  like  a  Macheath.  lu 
the  Farce,  Mr.  Liston,  as  usual,  amused  the  audience  highly  in  the 
character  of  Apollo  Belvi,  particularly  in  the  dancing-duet  with  Mr. 
Harley,  in  which  he  made  a  faux  pas,  and  fell  upon  his  hands  and 
knees.  The  only  damage  he  received  was  a  considerable  breach  in  his 
inexpressibles,  which  occasioned  peals  of  laughter,  and  he  was  ac- 
tually compelled  by  the  audience  to  repeat  the  dance  in  this  condi- 
tion !  Our  old  friend,  Harley,  as  Billy  Buskin,  went  through  his 
metamorphoses  to  the  great  entertainment  of  the  house  ; — could 
he  not,  by  the  bye,  get  a  more  human-looking  wig  than  that  which 
he  wore  as  the  hair-dresser? — it  is  decidedly  too  outre.  The  house 
was  full  of  genteel  people,  and  we  anticipate  a  flourishing  campaign 
this  season.

During  the  interval  between  the  pieces  at  the  Cobourg  Theatre,  on 
Monday  night,  a  ruffian  in  the  gallery,  threw  a  large  stone  ginger- 
beer  bottle  with  the  greatest  violence  into  the  pit  ;  the  bottle  struck 
the  head  of  an  eldeily  female,  who,  stunned  by  the  blow,  nearly 
fainted  ;  some  friends  near  her  took  off  her  bonnet  and  cap,which  were 
deluged  ia  blood.  The  sinferer  was  carried  out  of  the  theatre,  and  an 
universal  cry  prevailed  throughout  the  house  for  the  detection  of  the 
miscreant,  but  unfortunately  for  the  end  of  justice,  he  escaped  in  the 
confusion. 

Mr.  Fhilipps,  of  the  English  Opera  House,  gives  a  Lecture  on 
Singing  and  Vocal  Music  at  the  Argyll  Rooms  to-morrow. 

To  the  Editor  of  The  Theatrical  Observer. 

Sir — Seeing  a  short  query  in  your  useful  publication  of  yesterday, 
as  to  whether  a  new  performer,  making  a  first  appearance  in  a  new 
character,  has  not  a  right  to  a  certain  number  of  orders.  I  beg  to 
inform  your  correspondent,  that  the  "  order"  is  altogether  a  matter 
of  courtesy  from  the  proprietors,  and  that  he  must  be  extremely  ig- 
norant of  theatrical  affairs  in  proposing  the  question,  when  it  is  known 
that  there  are  times  when  gratuitous  admissions  keep  money  from 
the  doors  /and  which  would  evidently  be  the  case  now,  during  the  suc- 
cessful career  of  Der  Freischutz  at  one  of  •'  our  summer  theatres." 

I  am,  Sir,  your's  obediently, 

AN  OLD  STAGER. 


To  the  Editor  of  The  Theatrieal  Observer, 

Sir — Observing  the  number  of  cases  of  Hydrophobia,  and  being  a 
great  play-goer,  I  beg  to  state  that  I  hope  none  of  our  Managers 
will,  for  the  present,  get  up  "  The  Forest  of  Bondy  ;  or,  the  Dog  of 
Mohtargis"  lest  the  canine  performer  in  the  piece  should  prove  mad, 
and  not  only  bite  Captain  Aubri,  but  the  other  persons  of  .the  drama, 
and  perhaps  fly  at  the  audience ! 

Your's,  P.  P. 

To  Mister  Editor. 

Sir, 

You'll  exkuse  me,  but,  Sir,  seeing  as  how  you've  a  vast  to  do 
about  the  theaturs,  and  it  being  as  now  cruel  hot  weather  for  them 
'ere  places,  you'll  exkuse  me,  but  as  I'm  a  poor  widow  out  o'  work, 
and  wants  sommit  to  do,  might'nt  I  get  a  bit  o'  bread  by  hawking  of 
dry  pocket-hanherchers ,  at  the  theaturs,  for  the  'commodation  o*  them 
as  purspires  over  freely  } — I  would'nt  charge  no  more  nor  a  shilling  a 
piece,  and  I'd  take  'em  back  for  four-pence,  an  they  ban't  used  by 
snuffy  people.  •;

No.  832  Friday,  July  SO,  1824.  Price  U. 

There  was  another  fashionable  and  crowded  assemblage  here  last 
night,  to  see  Der  Freischutz,  and  Love's  Dream.  The  former  piece 
has  been  much  improved  in  many  respects  since  the  first  night,  and 
would  give  perfect  satisfaction,  were  the  concluding  scene  altered  a 
little.  It  is  destructive  of  all  past  interest,  to  behold  in  this  scene 
the  Dasmon  walk  in  amongst  a  number  of  people,  and  bear  off  one  oi 
them  amidst  flames  and  other  devilish  horrors,  whilst  the  remaining 
group  look  on  with  indifference,  and  instantly  proceed,  on  the  iden- 
tical ground  that  had  gaped  and  swallowed  up  their  comrade,  to  sing 
and  be  merry,  and  make  a  match  at  matrimony.  Surely  it  would 
have  been  better  for  those  whom  the  Devil  had  left  untouched,  to  fly, 
and  let  the  scene  close  over  the  roasting  of  the  wicked  Caspar.  Af- 
terwards they  might  have  been  congregated  in  a  pleasanter  spot,  and 
have  sang  and  danced,  and  made  the  lovers  happy.  However,  Dor 
Freischutz  has  the  merit  of  being  a  very  singular  production,  and 
the  music  in  general  is  uncommonly  fine.  Mr.  Braham,  Miss  Noel, 
Miss  Povey,  and  Mr.  H.  Phillips,  sang  with  excellent  effect,  and 
obtained  great  applause.  The  Overture,  as  usual,  was  much  ad- 
mired.— The  Orchestra  is  very  ably  conducted. 

In  Love's  Dream,  the  cleverest  of  all  the  clever  Miss  Kelly's, 
acted  with  infinite  , humor  and  dexterity,  and  with  Mr.  Wrench  ia 
the  same  piece,  often  received  loud  applause.  Mr.  W.  Chapman  aUo 
gave  great  satisfaction. 

There  was  an  excellent  house  here  last  night.  The  first  piece  was 
Mrs.  Smith,  *hich  amused  considerably  :  then  tame  The  Heir  at 
Law,  which  was  admirably  acted.  Mr.  Lyston's  old  Chandltr  is  a 
fine  comic  hit,  and  Mr.  Harley's  Doctor  Pangloss,  has  all  the  eccen- 
tricity of  manner  recessary  for  this  farcical  sketch.  These  two  gen- 
tlemen kept  the  audience  in  high  mirth.  Mrs.  Windsor's  Lady  Du- 
lerly  was  ;not  badly  done.  Dick  Dowlas,  by  Mr.  Vising,  was  well 
acted.  That  rising  performer,  Mr.  W.  West,  played  Zekiel  Hotne- 
*pun  with  great  truth  of  colouring,  and  looked  the  honest  eountry 
lad  extremely  well.  Miss  Love  appeared  as  the  unsophisticated 
Cicely,  and  got  through  the  part  pretty  tolerably,  considering  that 
she  is  so  smart'  a  lady  in  her  usual  etyle  of  performing.  The  Two 
Pages  of  Frederick  the  Great  was  the  last  piece,  and  Mr.  W.  Far- 
rbk,  Madame  Vestris,  Miss  Levi,  and  Mrs.  Gibs*,  rendered^  very 
entejrttininjr,

A  young  man  of  colour,  at  Jamaica,  has  been  sentenced  to  prisoi 
for  two  months,  on  a  charge  of  having  cried  out  to  the  actors  on  the 
stage  of  the  theatre,  during  the  performance,  "  Play  the  downfall  of 
Jamaica!" — British  Press. 

The  attractions  of  Vauxoall  are  presented  this  Evening. 

To  the  Editor  of  The  Theatrical  Observer. 

Mr.  Editor, 

Being  well  aware  of  the  liberality  of  your  valuable 
Observer,  I  take  the  liberty  of  stating  the  following  circumstance. 

A  friend  of  mine,  (a  youth  seventeen  years  of  age)  having  been  per- 
suaded by  several  amateurs,  that  he  possesses  abilities  for  the  his- 
trionic art,  which  (if  cultivated)  might  enable  him  to  become  an  or- 
nament to  the  Stage  ;  is  desirous  to  know  what  line  of  conduct  he 
should  pursue  for  that  purpose  ;  therefore,  if  you,  or  (through  your 
inserting  this)  any  of  your  readers,  could  inform  him,  he,  and  my- 
self, would  ever  feel  grateful  for  your  kindness. 

I  am,  Sir, 
A  CONSTANT  READER. 

The  Editor  thinks  the  young  gentleman  should  make  application  to 
Mr.  T.  Dibden,  who  instructs  for  the  Stage. 

To  the  Editor  of  The  Theatrical  Observer. 
Sir, 

Seeing  an  answer  to  my  letter  published  by  you  yesterday;  I 
cannot  help  replying  to  it  ;  I  know  not  who  the  writer  is,  but  he  has 
answered  my  letter  very  confidently.  -I  do  say,  Sir,  that  when  new 
pei formers  make  their  appearance,  they  have  a  right  to  send  their 
friends.  As  to  it  being  a  matter  of  courtesy,  I  well  know,  or  the  lady 
to  whom  I  allude  would  have  sent  some  friends,  but  she  could  not  as 
she  was  only  allowed  two  Orders.  As  to  the  successful  career  of 
Der  Freischutz  at  one  of  our  summer  theatres,  that  can  have  nothing 
to  do  with  my  letter,  as  the  person  to  whom  I  allude,  made  her  first 
appearance  before  it  was  announced,  and  the  pit  of  the  Theatre  was 
not  half  full ;  and  when  I  heard  she  was  only  allowed  a  certain  num- 
ber of  orders,  I  sent  several  persons  to  the  house  myself. 

I  am,  Sir, 
A  LOVER  OF  JUSTICE.

t%  Nothing  oxtenuate  nor  set  down  aught  in  malice. " 

No.  833  Saturday,  July  31,   1824.  Price  Id. 

Nothing  new  occurred  in  the  performance  of  Der  Freischutz  lust 
night  ;  but  it  attracted  as  much  as  before.  JYIiss  Kelly  and  Mr. 
Wrench  were  extremely  amusing  in  Gretna  Green.  Mr.  Pearjman 
and  Miss  Povev  sang  very  pleasingly. — We  think  Mr.  Peakman  im- 
proved by  his  recent  trip. 

The  performances  of  last  night  went  off  with  excellent  effect,  and 
gave  much  delight  to  a  numerous  audience.  In -Sweethearts  and  IVives, 
which  was  the  second  piece,  Bladamc  Vestkis  was  encored  in  her 
song  of  "  Why  arc  you  wandering  here  I  pray"  and  Mr.  Liston  in 
his  Lamentation  Song.  The  new  Comedy  of  Married  and  Single 
was  the  last  piece,  in  which  an  apology  was  made  by  Mr.  Cooper,  for 
Mrs.  T.  Hill,  who  was  indisposed,  and  Miss  Wo'id  undertook  the 
part,  and  got  through  it  very  well.--The  new  Comic  Opera  forth- 
coming, is  anxiously  looked  for  by  the  regular  play-goers.  In  part  of 
our  number,  yesterday,  we  spoke  of  Mr.  West,  instead  of  Mr.  Huckel. 

A  very  astonishing  musical  phenomenon,  in  the  form  of  a  female 
child,  only  three  years  and  eight  months  old,  is  now  performing  on 
the  harp  at  Liverpool.  Her  skill  is  so  extraordinary,  that  many  of 
the  audience  are  affected  even  to  tears.  No  name  is  given — they  call 
her  the  In/ant  Lyre. 

We  are  happy  to  hear  that  the  subscription  for  poor  Mis.  P>la\d 
is  encreasing.  Persons  of  all  ranks  have  come  forward  on  this  occa- 
sion. An  addition,  however,  to  what  has  been  contributed,  is  still 
required,  to  place  her  in  a  proper  state  of  comfort. 

Dublin  Theatre — July  28.— "  The  public  are  respectfully  in- 
formed, that  Mr.  Kean  is  engaged  at  this  Theatre  for  a  limited  num- 
ber of  nights,  and  will  make  his  first  appearance  on  Monday  next, 
in  the  tragedy  of  King  Richard  the  Third." — Bliss  M.  Tree  is  only 
to  perform  here  for  a  few  nights  longer.  She  has  pleased  in  an  emi- 
nent degree,  because  she  possesses  so  much  sweetness  of  manner,  and 
has  so  delightful  a  voice. — We  shall  greatly  regret  her  departure. 

Liverpool  Theatre. — Miss  L.  Kelly,  Mr.  Connor,  and  Mi, 
Meadow?,  are  here.

Birmingham  Theatre. — July  26. — Our  townsman,  Jones,  takes 
his  Benefit  to-night,  and  his  acknowledged  talents,  aided  by  a  nu- 
merous and  respectable  connexion  here,  will  doubtless  ensure  him  a 
good  house*.  .The  evening's  entertainments  will  derive  very  consider- 
able additional  attraction  by  the  appearance  of  that  excellent  comic 
actress,  Mrs.  Davison,  aftes  a  long  absence  from  our  boards. 

July  29 — On  this  evening,  Mr.  Warde,  who  daily  rises  in  estima- 
tion with  the  public,  performs  his  admired  character  of  Rob  Roy.-~~ 
Mr.  Elliston  is  to  appear  to-morrow  in  bis  popular  character  of 
Ranger,  in  The  Suspicious  Husband,  with  him  Mr.  Blanchard  and 
Mrs.  Davison  also  appear. 

The  first  of  Mr.  Philipp's  Lectures  were  delivered  yesterday  at  the 
Argyll  Rooms.  His  instructions  arc  original  ;  he  exemplifies  them 
by  instances  and  illustrations  ;  and  those  who  cultivate  the  vocal  art, 
would  do  well  to  treasure  up  bis  precepts. — It  is  with  the  utmost 
pleasure  we  find  Mr.  Philipps  intends  to  give  a  second  Lecture. 


To  the  Editor  of  The  Theatrical  Observer. 

My  dear  Observer, 

There  are  two  or  three  things  in  the  performance  of 
this  Der  Freischutz,  at  the  linglish  Opera-House,  which  should  be 
altered.  In  the  first  place,  the  stage  effect  would  not  be  at  all  di- 
minished if  lamps  were  placed  at  the  back  of  the  boxes  :  at  present 
they  are  so  dark  that  you  cannot  discover  the  features  of  your  next 
neighbour — many  a  pretty  face,  therefore  goes  without  its  just  tribute 
of  admiration.  Mr.  Arnold  has  contrived  to  draw  together  some 
very  genteel  audiences,  and  he  must  know  that  a  great  part  go  as 
much  to  be  seen  as  to  see.  The  house  looks  now  just  as  it  did  when 
Mr.  Bartley  gave  bis  Astronomical  Lectures.  The  music  of  this 
piece  is  certainly  very  fine,  but  the  translation  appears  to  me  to  be 
too  literal.  There  is  little  or  no  interest  in  the  lovers,  or  the  comic 
characters,  but  the  originality  and  spirit-stirring  wildness  of  the  story 
are  sufficient  to  render  it  attractive.  Mr.  Bennett  is  a  passable  melo- 
dramatic actor,  but  he  has  an  unfortunate  dragging  delivery,  which 
is  very  tedious.  Could  not  the  casting  of  the  balls  be  shortened  a 
little  ? — I  really  was  quite  tired  of  seeing  this  gentleman  making  faces 
over  his  cauldron.  There  are  some  other  matters  capable  of  being 
mended,  but  the  last  scene  is  the  most  defective  part  of  the  piece, 
but  as  you  have  mentioned  this  before,  however,  I  need  not  dwell 
upon  it.  There  is  altogether  a  considerable  deal  of  the  extraordinary 
about  Der  Freischutz  ;  and  it  is  no  wonder  it  is  so  much  run  after. 
Your's,  JOHN  BROWN.

"  Nothing  extenuate  nor  set  down  nuglit  in  malice." 

No.  834  Monday,  Aug.  2,   1824.  Price  Id. 

/>/?«  Freischutz  was  attended  by  another  numerous  and  genteel 
audience  on  Saturday  night.  The- Music,  and  the  scene  of  the  Cast- 
ing of  the  Balls,  appear  to  be  the  grand  attractions  of  the  piece. — 
Mr.  Bra  HAM  was  encored  in  the  song,  "  JVow,  good  night,"  as  was 
the  Chorus  of  Huntsmeu  in  "  fVhat  equals  on  earth  the  delight  of 
the  huntsman." 

Free  and  Easy  followed,  and  was  well  acted  by  Mr.  Wrench,  Mr. 
Bartley,  Mr.  Kayner,  Mr.  Chapman,  and  Miss  Kelly. 


For  the  first  time,  this  season,  and,  we  believe,  for  many  years, 
the  dull  and  heavy  Comedy  of  Such   Things  Are,  was  performed  at 
this  Theatre  on  Saturday  night ;  we  (\o  not  think  the  revival  does  any 
credit  to  the  taste  or  judgment  of  the  Manager.     On  its  first  repre- 
sentation it  was  exceedingly  popular,  but  solely  because  the  celebrated 
Howard  was  then  the  subject  of  universal  admiration,  and  his  name 
the  theme  of  universal  praise.  To  compliment  this  excellent  man  (who 
by  the  bye,  is  described  by  the  authoress  as  hateing  all  compliments) 
Mrs.  Inchbald  produced  her  Comedy,  and  however  deserving  of  the 
success  that  followed,  this  feeling  might  have  been,  it  was  more  than 
a  rccompence  for  the  talent  employed  upon  it.     The  production  is  as 
insipid  as  it  could  well  be,  and  there  is  nothing  of  humor,  bustle,  or 
character,  to  atone  for  its  decided  want   of  interest  and  dramatic  in- 
cident.    We  cannot  but  condemn  in  the  most   unqualified  manner  the 
revival  of  this  piece,  while  so  many  of  its   betters  are  forgotten  by 
those,  who  alone  possess  the   power  of  preserving  from  oblivion    the 
works  of  our  best  dramatists.     Mr.  W.  Farren   performed  with  ad- 
mirable effect  the  part  of  Sir  Luke  Tremor,  but  it   must  have  been 
wretched,  indeed,  if  he  had  not  been  able  to  render  it  amusing.     Mi. 
Liston  was  not  "  At  Home"  in  the  character  of  Ttoineell,  and    his 
gift   of  rich   humor  was   lost.     Mr.  Johnson  acted  My  Lord  Flint, 
but  did  nothing  more.     Mr.  Vining,  who  is  daily  improving,  was  ex- 
cellent as  Elvirus  ;  and  Mrs.  Glover  and  Mrs.  Gibbs  were  both  ad- 
mirable as  Arabella  and  Lady  Tremor.      We  must  not  omit  our  tri- 
bute of  praise  to  the  acting  of  Mr.  Cooper,  who  sustained   the  part 
of  Mr.  Haswell  in  as  perfect  a  style  as  we  ever  recollect.     His  con*

ception  of,  the  character  was  exquisite,  and  his  performance  equally 
so.  The  Farce  of  The  Padlock  followed:  Miss  Paton  and  Miss 
Love  sang  very  sweetly,  and  they  were  well  supported  by  Mr.  W, 
West  and  Mr.  Williams. 

Davis's  Amphitheatre,  and  Sadler's  Wells,  it  will  be  seen,  have  a 
great  variety  of  novel  amusements  this  evening. 

The  entertainments  and  attractions  generally  at  Vauxhall  have 
brought  to  it  this  season  the  most  unexampled  patronage.  It  is  now 
in  the  very  zenith  of  its  success,  and  the  continued  fine  weather  in- 
duces crowds  of  the  beauty,  rank,  and  fashion  of  London,  to  assemble 
as  a  matter  of  preference  and  delight,  after  the  anxiety  and  toil  of 
the  busy  day. 

Delicate  %Affair. — If  report  is  to  be  credited,  a  first-rate  vocalist 
will  soon  appear  before  the  public  in  a  new  and  not  very  agreeable 
character.  It  is  said  that  he  lias  felt  for  some  time  the  influence  of 
the  gentle  passion  in  a  way  unfavorable  to  his  repose,  and  the  feeling 
was  equally  ardent  on  the  part  of  the  lady,  (the  wife  of  a  wealthy 
commoner)  which  has  led  to  so  unfortunate  a  result. 

Mr.  Sinclair  sailed  from  Dublin  at  the  close  of  the  last  week,  to  ful- 
fil an  engagement  in  Edinburgh,  where  he  will  be  joined  in  a  few  days 
by  Miss  Tree. — British  Press. 

At  the  Cheltenham  Races,  Mr.  and  Mrs.  Yates  were  surrounded  by 
a  gang  of  sharpers,  who  succeeded  in  robbing  Mrs.  Yates  of  her  re- 
ticule, containing  a  £5.  note,  some  sovereigns,  a  gold  watch,  chain, 
seals,  &c.  with  which  they  escaped.

m 


This  theatre  was  very  full  last  night,  and,  indeed  we  may  say  that 
it  is  now  almost  equally  well  attended  every  evening.  The  Comedy  of 
The  Young  Quaker  was  the  first  piece,  and  was  acted  in  the  most 
eutertaining  manner.  Mr.  W.  Farren's  Chronicle  was  admirable — • 
it  is,  however,  no  libel  on  his  professional  character  to  say  he  can  only 
act  in  one  description  of  parts  with  eminent  success.  Mr.  Viking 
performed  Young  Sadboy  with  much  pleasantry,  and  was  duly  ap- 
plauded, as  was  Mr.  Harley,  in  Spatterdash,  which  is  one  of  his 
excellent  hits-off — full  of  life  and  humor.  Mr.  Liston  was  thrown 
away  upon  Clod.  The  Dinah  Primrose  of  Miss  Chester  is  delight- 
ful. Mrs.  Gibbs,  in  Pink,  was  quite  at  home  ;  and  the  other  cha- 
racters were  in  general  well  supported.  Killing  no  Murder,  and  the 
Two  Pages  of  Frederick  the  Great,  closed  the  entertainments  iu  ex- 
cellent st  vie. 


Another  crowded  house  to  see  Der  Freischutz  last  night.  The 
music,  and  the  horrors  of  the  Wolfs  Glen,  are  the  general  theme  of 
conversation.  The  Germans  feel  highly  flattered  at  the  success  of 
their  countryman's  Opera  ;  and  nightly  there  are  to  be  discovered  in 
the  Theatre  many  of  those  persons,  who  give  vent  to  their  feelings 
and  sentimonts  in  those  agreeable  tones  which  Swift  compared  to  the 
neighing  of  a  horse. 

Military  Tactics,  and  A  Dun  a  Day,  followed  the  Opera,  and 
were  very  pleasantly  acted. 

On  Thursday  next,  will  be  produced  a  new  Farce,  under  the  title 
of  ('  The  Reign  of  Twelve  Hours!" 

French  Theatres. — A  letter  from  Paris,  dated  Saturday,  says — 
'•This  evening,  the  first  representation  of  It'  Ecole  du  Scandle,  as  li- 
terally translated  from  Sheridan's  admirable  comedy,  will  be  given  at 
the  Theatre  Versailles. — The  boxes  are  all  taken.  No  alteration  has 
been  made  in  the  plot,  characters,  or  scenery  of  the  play.  A  new 
piece  called  L'  Ecolier  d'  Oxford,  was  brought  out  at  the  Odeoa  the 
other  evening.  There  is  nothing  very  meritorious  in  this  piece,  which 
was  only  tolerably  received." 


THE   THEATRICAL    OBSERVER 


Miss  Tree  and  Mr.  Sinclair  are  to  appear  here,  we  believe,  in  about 
a  week.  They  were  expected  to  have  immediately  followed  the  close 
of  Miss  Stephens'  and  Mr.  Horn's  engagement ;  but  Miss  Tree  was 
detained  by  the  prolongation  of  Covent  Garden  season.— Edinburgh 
Paper. 

To  the  Editor  of  The  Theatrical  Observer. 
My  Dear  Observer, 

I've  a  bit  of  a  crow  to  pluck  with  My  Lord  Ogleby,  alias 
Mr.  W.  Fauuen.  I  perceive  "  he  does  a  bit  of  literary  for  *'  The  London," 
and  is  "  nothing  if  not  critical. "  He  has  adventured  sorae  remarks  upon 
Shakspeare's  most  beautiful  creations,  Hamlet,  Ophelia,  the  famous  soliloquy 
<k  To  be,  or  not  lobe,"  &c.  I  shall  confine  ^iy self  at  present  to  his  first  lucu- 
bration "  on  the  Madness  of  Hamlet."  The  purport  of  this  is  to  prove,  that 
Shakspeare  intended  to  exhibit  Hamlet  as  labouring  under  a  species  of  in- 
anity, ycleped  melancholia  attonita.  He  proves  this  upon  the  authority  of  Dr. 
Mason  Good,  whose  four  goodly  octavos,  Mr.  Fakren  has  been  rummaging 
for  the  purpose.  "  Hear 'till  him,"  as  Sir  VValtjeh  would  say: — "  Having 
collected  the  evidence  of  Hamlet's  madness/  afforded  by  his  discourse  and  con- 
duct in  the  Play,  it  remains  to  be  shewn  by  medical  testimony,  that  he  ought  to 
be  pronounced  insane."  Would  not  any  body  suppose  that  my  Lord  was  sit- 
ting upon  a  commission  to  enquire  into  the  state  of  the  Lord  Hamlet's  intel- 
lectuals, and  summing  up  the  evidence  to  the  jury  ?  He  quotes  from  Dr.  Good 
a  description  of  the  aforesaid  malady,  of  which  •'  a  love  of  solitude,  gloom, 
fear,  suspicion,  and  taciturnity,  are  the  ordinary  signs."  Dr.  Good  says, 
*'  there  is  a  desire  of  doing  well,  but  the  will  is  wayward  and  unsteady,  and 
produces  an  inability  of  firmly  pursuing  any  laudable  exertion  or  purpose," 
and  then,  my  Lord  adds,  "  grief,  (and  particularly  the  loss  of  friends)  or  long 
exposure  to  the  direct  rays  of  the  sun,  have  frequently  produced  it."  The 
sequiter  of  this  is,  that  Hamlet  must  have  gone  out  into  the  garden  with  his 
hat  off,  and  got  his  knowledge-box  ove.-heated  ! — this  in  Denmark  too  ! — My 
Lord  speaks : — "  the  Ring  says,  (speaking  to  Hamlet)  "  How  is  it  that  the 
clouds  still  hang  on  you  ?"  Hamlet — -'Not  so,  my  lord,  Vmtoo  much  V  the 
sun."  That  is,  **  the  King  had  asked  Hamlet  why  the  clouds  were  still  hang* 
ing  on  him,  and  the  Prince  replies: — "  So  far  from  my  being  clouded,  or  in  a 
humid  atmosphere,  I  am  too  much  in  the  sun — I'm  actually  brain-scorch- 
ed !!  !*.'■  Now  is  not  this  admirable  fooling? — Who  would  suspect  that  my 
Lord  Ogleby  knew  no  more  about  Shakspeare  than  this  ?  Can  he  he  such  a  flat 
as  to  suppose  that  the  King  really  thought  Hamlet  was  in  nub ib us  1  Could 
none  of  Messrs.  Taylor  and  Hessey's  scribes  tell  him  that  there  are  such  things 
as  figures  of  sp-ech,  and  that  his  Majesty  so  far  from  suspecting  his  princely 
nephew  of  being  in  a  fog,  intended'to  insinuate  that  the  clouds  of  grief  were 
hanging  upon  him,  to  which  the  Prin>  e  replies — '.'  Not  so,  I  am  too  much  in 
the  glare  and  bastle  of  your  immoral  court."  I  shall  return  to  this  subject  by 
and  bye ;  at  present  I  must  content  myself  with  observing,  that  Mr.  Farren 
completely  misunderstands  the  author  he  attempts  to  criticise.  Shakspeare 
never  intended  to  exhibit  a  stark  madman  on  the  stage — the  idea  is  absurd. — ■ 
He  knew  too  well  that  bodily  disease  is  not  a  subject  for  representation.  The 
beautiful  and  almost  faultless  character  in  question,  is  a  pure  personification 
of  intellect.  The  poet  has  here  shown  a  mind  of  vivid  sensibility,  clouded 
by  grief,  and  feelings  painfully  acute,  stung  and  goaded  on  to  acts  at  variance 
with  their  nature  from  the  unfortunate  circumstances  in  which  he  is  placed,  and 
the  vices  by  which  he  is  surrounded.  It  may  be  very  true  that  his  acts  are  not 
always  consistent  with  sound  reason  ;  but  this  does  not  prove  that  he  is  mad, 
nor  that  the  character  is  unnatural.  If  that  was  the  case,  no  character  in  the 
whole  range  of  the  poet's  works  could  be  pronounced  of  sound  mind.  Really, 
"Mr.  Farren,  you  must  not  look  to  Dr.  Good  for  a  good  commentary  upon 
•Shakspeare.  Your's,  most  critically,     JOHN  BROWN.

Really,  we  are  at  a  loss  to  vary  our  account  of  proceedings  at  tin's 
Theatre.  Der  Freisohutz  holds  such  determined  possession  of  the 
boards,  that  our  Paper  must  suffer  for  it.  Well,  with  all  our  heart — 
we  are  not  sorry  for  this  endurance,  if  our  readers  are  not :  but  there 
is  some  reason  to  dread  the  falling  off  of  variety,  which  is  the  charm 
that  leads  us  sane  mortals  through  life  without  coming  under  the  in*> 
fluence  of  the  Blue  Devils.  Talking  of  Devils,  the  gentleman  of  this 
species,  who  horrifies  us  in  this  piece  by  the  tremendous  rolling  of  hia 
fiery  eyes,  and  who  raises  up  such  an  awful  corps  of  diabolicals,  is 
actually  a  Devil  of  the  very  first  consequence.  He  appears  to  have 
congregated  about  him  as  much  of  the  dismal  and  terrific,  as  his  emi- 
nent station  in  the  lower  regions  could  render  necessary  to  his  demon- 
iacal dignity.  What  between  spirits  in  shadowy  forms,  of  ominous 
owls,  and  deadly  bats,  of  croaking  ravens,  of  monsters  nameless  as 
shapeless,  and  bloody  rivers,  and  lightnings  glaring  over  the  sullen 
scene,  and  roaring  winds,  and  rattling  thunder,  his  Dcemonship  is 
presented  to  us  under  circumstances  of  a  most  inviting  nature.  After 
the  consideration  of  sneb  sublime  objects,  can  it  be  expected  we  should 
trouble  ourselves  or  our  readers,  with  any  mention  of  those  harmonious 
creatures,  Braham,  Povey,  Noel,  &c.  &c. 

I^ap^marftet  €f)eatre* 

Last  night,  Mr.  W.  Farren  toddled  about  very  effectively  as  Beau 
Shatterly.  We  are  glad  to  find  that  a  new  Operatic  Comedy  is  an- 
nounced for  Saturday,  for  to  say  truth,  Married  and  Single  is  made  of 
perishable  stuff.  While  upon  this  subject,  we  would  beg  leave  to  ask 
why  two  pieces  under  this  title  are  allowed  to  issue  from  the  press  at 
the  same  time?  Mr.  Moncrieff,  we  understand,  made  a  translation 
of  the  original  French  piece  for  some  minor  house,  which,  of  comse, 
he  was  at  liberty  to  do,  but  surely  he  has  no  business  to  adopt  Mr,. 
Poole's  title-page : — we  must  say,  it  looks  a  little  like  deception. 
Mr.  Miller  should  lose  no  time  in  bringing  out  the  real  Simon  Pure. 

After  Married  and  Single,  Mr.  Cooper  came  forward  with  a  very 
long  face,  and  made  a  speech  of  which  the  following  is  a  verbatim  et 
literatim  report : — "  Ladies  and  Gentlemen,  I  appear  before  you  now — 
it  is  a  very  unpleasant  circumstance  to  me — the  Managers  have  desired 
me  to  state— (feeling  for  something  in  hte  pocket) — they  received 


THE   THEATRICAL    OBSERVER 


this  medical  certificate— (producing  it) — from  a — Mr.  Phillips— -of — 
Old  Cavendish  Street — (spelling  the  letter) — stating  that  Miss  Ches- 
•  ter  is  so  extremely  ill  she  cannot  appear  to-night  in  Sweethearts  and 
Wives.  Under  these  circumstances.,  Mrs.  T.  Hill,  who  I  believe  has 
played  the  part  twice  or  thrice  this  season,  has  undertaken  to  play  the 
part,  but  she  is  ill  too  !  Miss  Wood,  therefore,  at  a  very  short  no- 
tice, has  consented  to  appear  as  Eugenia. — (a  pause)  Will  you  ac- 
cept her  as  a  substitute ?"  A  little  applause  and  some  hisses  followed 
this  oration,  but  the  ayes  had  if,  and  Miss  Wood  appeared  ac- 
cordingly, and  acted  throughout  with  considerable  feeling. 

Rossini. — A  French  Paper  has  the  following — "  The  Prince  of 
Saxe-Cobourg,  son-in-law  to  the  King  of  England,  has  shewn  a  re- 
markable instance  of  generosity  towards  Rossini.  The  custom  with 
this  celebrated  Italian  composer,  is,  never  to  go  to  any  musical 
soirees  for  less  than  50  guineas.  Ho  three  times  presided  over  Con- 
certs for  the  Prince,  for  which  his  Highness  sent  him  500  guineas  and 
a  diamond  pin." 

Now,  this  we  conceive  is  nothing  more  nor  less  than  a  puff  of 
Signor  Rossini's,  on  his  return  to  the  French  capital.  If  we  could 
bring  ourselves  to  believe  that  a  Prince,  who  has  hitherto  been  popular 
on  account  of  his  own  personal  conduct,  as  well  as  the  endearing  re- 
eo^ection  of  his  lamented  Princess,  could  so  far  forget  the  liberality 
of  the  founders  of  his  fortune,  as  thus  to  lavish  on  a  conceited  fo- 
reigner, for  three  nights  superintendanee  of  a  band  of  musicians,  a 
sum  that  would  keep  in  comfort  ten  British  families  for  an  entire  year, 
we  could  hardly  restrain  the  honest  indignation  of  our  feelings,  from, 
expressing  the  contempt  every  Englishman  of  sense  must  join  with  us 
in  entertaining,  at  such  a  wanton  waste  of  British  money  on  a  worth- 
less object. 

The  Duke  of  Wellington  honoured  Davis's  Amphitheatre  with  his 
presence  on  Monday  night.  His  Grace  paid  marked  attention  to  the 
representation  of  The  Battle  of  Waterloo,  and  was  much  gratified 
with  the  inimitable  horsemanship  of  Mons.  Dncrow. 

Yesterday  a  Meeting  of  the  new  Renters  of  Drury-lane  Theatre 
was  held  in  the  Saloon,  for  the  purpose  of  declaring  a  dividend  upon 
the  debentures  for  the  last  acting  season.  Sir  Thomas  Turton  was 
called  to  the  Chair.  We  are  happy  to  state  that  the  Trustees  have 
been  enabled  to  increase  the  dividend  from  £12  10s.  to  £15  10s.

The  Comic  Piece  of  Matrimony  commenced  the  performances  at 
this  pleasant  little  Theatre  last  evening.  Mrs.  Chatterley  played 
the  part  of  Clara  admirably,  as  did  Mr.  Vining  that  of  Delavat. — 
Mr.  Lee  acted  O'Cloggerty  with  considerable  humor. — There  was 
much  applause  throughout.  The  Beggar's  Opera  afforded  a  high 
treat  to  the  audience,  from  the  admirable  manner  in  which  it  is  sung 
and  acted  at  this  house.  Miss  Paton,  as  Polly,  delighted  as  usual 
by  the  brilliant  style  in  which  she  executed  the  songs  of  her  part ;  she 
was  rapturously  encored  in  "  Cease  your  funning"  which  was  a  fine 
display  of  harmony  and  science.  Madame  Vestris  appeared  to  la- 
bour under  the  effect  of  indisposition,  but  notwithstanding  sang  and 
acted  the  part  of  Marhealh,  with  admirable  spirit  and  effect  through- 
out.— She  was  encored  in  "  How  happy  could  I  be  with  either'*  Mrs. 
C.  Jones,  as  Miss  Lucy,  looked  and  acted  the  part  excellently.  The 
characters  of  Peachum  and  Lockit  were  well  played  by  Messrs.  Far- 
ren  and  Williams  : — the  quarrel-scene  between  these  worthies  was 
highly  humorous  and  effective.  The  Comedy  of  the  Young  Quaker 
concluded  the  evening's  entertainments,  in  which  Messrs.  Liston', 
Farren,  and  Harley  appeared,  and  gave  infinite  amusement  by 
their  excellent  acting  in  the  parts  of  Clod,  Chronicle,  and  Spatter- 
dash.     The  Comedy  was  much  applauded. — The  house  was  crowded. 

On  Monday  next,  will  be  produced  a  new  Comic  Opera,  under  the 
title  of  "  The  Alcade  ;  or,  the  Secrets  of  Office." 


Last  night  after  Der  Freischutx,  which  went  off  with  much  eclat, 
The  Padlock  was  enacted,  with  the  novelty  of  Mr.  Sloman,  as  Mungo. 
This  gentleman  is  an  old  minor — a  prodigiocs  favorite  with  the  gal- 
leries of  Sadler's  Wells  and  the  Cobourg.  To  speak  a  word  of  truth, 
we  know  no  actor  escape  from  these  houses  undefiled.  They  arc  more 
than  country  theatres,  in  which  performers  only  learn  to  rant  and 
make  faces,  "  making  the  night  hideous  ;  but  at  these  pestilent  mi- 
nors, their  tastes  are  debauched,  and  their  powers  perverted,  till  they 
are  incapable  of  being  applied  to  any  good  or  useful  objects.  Their 
faces  are  familiar  as  the  man  in  the  yellow  hat  at  Exeter-'Change,  or 
the  "  nigger,"  at  the  Obelisk: — their  persons  are  "  common  hackuied 


THE   THEATRICAL    OBSERVER. 


in  the  eyes  of  men,"  and  associated  with  all  sorts  of  disagreeable  re~ 
collections — nielo-dramas,  '  full  of  sound  and  fury,  signifying  nothing/ 
real  water — glass-'euriains — broad-sword  combats — blood,  fury,  and 
blue  fire  !  Under  all  the  disadvantages  which  running  the  gauntlet  of 
those  houses  for  ten  years,  must  impose  upon  him,  Mr.  Sloman  ap- 
pears here. — It  is  but  fair  to  say  that  he  acquitted  himself  better  than 
could  have  been  expected.  He  hns  humor,  certainly,  but  it  is  too 
much  in  the  style  of  Mr.  W.  Chapman — '  damn'd  low,"  as  My  Lord 
Duke  says.  It  is  probable,  however,  that  Mr.  Sloman  will  see  the 
necessity  of  chastening  his  style,  but  at  present  it  is  out  of  its  me- 
ridian. Miss  Povey  warbled  awav  in  Leonora  with  considerable  effect, 
but  she  draws  out  her  notes  to  an  excess  at  times — it  is  like  extract- 
ing a  Champaigne  cork,  or  a  very  long  tooth.  All  the  other  cha- 
racters were  respectably  supported.  Amongst  the  fashionables  in  the 
boxes,  we  discerned  Ladies  Forbes,  Oai  michaei,  Ellenborough,  Mont- 
ford,  the  Marchioness  of  Londonderry,  the  Marquis  of  Hertford, 
(second  time)  Lord  Mount  Edgecombe,  Lord  Downe,  Sir  George 
Talbot,  Sir  Fitzroy  Maciean,  and  Mr.  Goldsmid. — The  house  was 
crowded. 

It  will  be  seen  by  our  play-bill  that  Miss  Kelly  appears  to-night, 
in  a  new  Farce,  together  with  Messrs.  Pearman,  Bartley,  and  W. 
Chapman  ;  so  we  must  expect  humor  and  harmony. 

Vauxhall. — To-morrow  evening,  there  will  bo  a  Splendid  Gala 
Fete,  under  the  especial  Patronage  of  His  Majesty. 

On  Friday  evening  last,  while  a  number  of  musical  gentlemen  were 
engaged  in  rehearsing  a  part  of  the  Creation  at  the  Concert  Room, 
Norwich,  on  coming  to  a  fine  close  with  the  words  '  Let  there  be  light 
and  there  was  light" — and  the  gas  flame  just  at  that  moment  sudden- 
ly went  out,  and  left  the  whole  band  in  perfect  darkness. 

Mr.  Thompson,  (of  Drury  Lane  Theatre)  sets  off  to-day  to  re-open 
the  English  Theatre  at  Boulogne. 

Mr.  Beazley,  the  architect  and  dramatist,  has  lately  been  married 
to  a  lovely  young  lady  with  £80,000  ! 

A  Constant  Reader  enquires  who  the  gentleman  was  that  supplied  the

Tub  Devil's  own  Drama  !  for  by  such  a  title  must  we  call  Der 
Freischutz,  drew  another  crowded  audience  last  night.  Thirteen  fuji 
houses  has  this  e.vtiaoidinary  piece  attracted,  and  in  the.  do^-dnys

— speaking  of  dogs — the  bones  do  not  go. 

"  Der  Freischct;:  was  followed  by  a  new  Musical  Entei  tainment,  pro- 
duced for  the  first  time,  under  the  title  of  the  lleign  of  Twelve 
Hoars.  This  piece  met  a  favorable  reception,  and  was  admirably 
acted,  particularly  by  Mr.  Hartley  and  Miss  Kellv.  We  will  not 
>ay  that  it  possesses  a  powerful  interest,  or  a  great  abundance  of  hu- 
mor, but  it  is  light,  and  passes  on  pleasantly  to  a  i  at  her  too  obvious 
a  conclusion. — The  following  is  a  description  of  the  story;  — 

The  Caliph  has  been  induced,  by  the  representations  of  bad  ad- 
visers, to  banish  a  virtuous  vizier,  who  took  with  him  a  daughter, 
the  lovely  and  witty  •  Vourma.  In  time  the  Caliph  discovered  his  er- 
lor,  but  not  before  the  death  of  the  banished  Vizier,  whose  daughter, 
however,  he  invited  to  his  court,  and  lavished  on  her  such  attentions 
as  excited  the  jealousy  of  his  son,  Prince  Zeangcr,  who,  without 
having  seen  JVourma,  conceived  such  a  rooted  hatred  of  her,  as  caused 
the  Caliph  to  imprison  him  to  secure  the  safety  of  the  young  favorite. 
JVourma,  however,  entertaius  a  generous  aifection  for  the  Prince,  and 
his  charmed  him,  incojr,  by  her  musical  talents  whilst  confined  in  hi> 
dungeon.  A  Princess  Zoraide,  at  this  period,  has  been  proposed  as 
a  match  for  Zeanger,  which  the  Caliph  desires  as  a  bond  of  peace 
between  him  and  a  neighbouring  state,  but  I  he  unknown  veiled  mu- 
sician has  interested  his  feelings  too  much  to  allow  him  to  assent,  to 
his  father's  wishes — the  consequence  i>,  the  Prince  is  returned  to  more 
vigorous  imprisonment.  JSourma,  determined  to  gain  the  aifections  of 
the  Prince,  and  reconcile  the  father  and  son,  induces  the  Caliph,  aa 
if  it  were  for  a  joke,  to  invest  her  with  the  sovereign  power  ior  the 
space  of  twelve  hours.  In  the  capacity  of  Queen  she  plays  with  the 
loyal  feeling  of  the  abdicated  Monarch  :  and  having  exchanged  cha- 
racters with  the  Princess  for  a  trial  of  her  personal  power  over  the 
Prince,  she  has  him  set  at  liberty — wins  his  heart  as  Zoraide — avows 
lieiself — and  delights  Zeangcr  with   proving  that  it  is   in   woman's

power  to  conquer  by  Iter  charms,  the  heart,  and  also  to  destroy  the 
prejudices  of  man.  She  is  united  to  Zcaiiger,  and  (lie  Caliph  and 
his  son  embrace,  thus  happily  concluding  A  Reign  of  Twelve  Hours. 
The  Music  by  Mr.  Herbert,  if  not  very  original,  was  pleasing. — 
Mr.  Pearman  had  an  encore. — The  house  was  crowded  at  an  early 
hour.

After  Sylvester  Daggenvood,  The  Marriage  of  Figaro  was  per- 
formed. Miss  Paton  represented  Susanna.  In  the  first  act  it  will 
be  remembered  that  Susanna  runs  after  the  Page  to  take  from  him 
the  ribbon  he  has  snatched.  In  doing  this  Miss  Paton's  foot  was  un- 
fortunately caught  in  her  dress,  and  she  fell  headlong  with  great  vio- 
lence on  the  stage.  She  appeared  unable  to  rise,  and  Mr.  Huckel 
and  Mrs.  Chatterley  fl>vw  to  her  assistance,  and  she  was  carried  off. 
After  some  time  had  elapsed,  Mr.  Vim  no  appeared,  and  stated  thar. 
Miss  Paton,  although  not  seriously  injured,  was  greatly  agitated  ; 
but  she  would  soon  return  to  go  on  with  her  part.  She,  accordingly, 
came  on  again  in  about  half  an  hour  evidently  considerably  disturbed 
by  the  accident.  Her  fine  voice,  however,  nothing  of  this  kind  could 
overcome,  and  she  sang  with  fine  effect,  and  obtained  the  greatest 
applause.

On  Sunday  last  Mr.  Price,  the  American  manager,  accompanied  by 
Miss  L.  Kelly,  and  the  other  performeis  whom  he  had  engaged,  em- 
barked at  Liverpool  on  board  the  packet-ship  Pacific,  and  sailed  for 
New  York. — British  Press. 

Mr.  Kean  appeared  at  Dublin  on  Monday  night,  for  the  first  time 
this  season,  in  his  favourite  character  of  Richard  the  Third.  On  his 
entrance  he  was  greeted  with  ?ong,  loud,  and  evidently  very  hearty 
applause.  This  he  acknowledged  with  mute,  yet  eloquent  gratitude. 
In  the  scene  with  Lady  Anne,  a  rather  singular  circumstance  occurred 
in  that  particular  part  where  Richard  exclaims,  "  Oh  !  divine  per- 
fection of  a  woman  :*' — A  lady  in  the  pit,  convinced,  no  doubt,  that 
there  was  nothing  divine  or  perfect  in  woman  at  all  (which,  by-the- 
bye,  we  take  leave  to  deny),  ejaculated  her  surprise  in  so  very  audible 
a  tone  as  to  be  heard  throughout  the  house.  This  caused  general 
laughter,  in  which  the  lady  joined,  and  momentarily  stopped  the  per- 
formance— but  attention  was  soon  restored  by  the  inimitable  exhibition 
of  that  encroaching  humility  by  which  Richard  works  himself,  not 
only  into  the  good  graces  of  Lady  Jlnne,  but  also  into  personal  ex- 
altation.— Dublin  Paper.

In  Lover's  Quarrels,  Mrs.  \V.  Clifford  appeared  as  Leonora. — 
She  is  a  lady  who  well  understands  the  business  of  flic  Stage  ;  and 
must  be  useful  in  many  parts.  The  other  characters  of  this  piece 
were  pleasantly  sustained.  Sweethearts  and  JFives  followed,  in  which 
Mrs.  Chatterley  supported  the  character  of  Eugenia,  and  Madame 
Vestris  played  Laura.  Mr.  Liston,  as  Billy,  was  as  humorous  as 
ever.  Two  Strings  to  your  Dow  concluded  the  entertainments  of  the 
evening  very  agrueably. 

€ng!i£!j  <0pcra4[)ou£fo 

Another  numerous  audience  had  their  hair  put  on  end  at  the  devil- 
ries of  the  arch  fiend,  Zamiel,  in  the  Opera  of  Dcr  Freischutz. — 
The  Casting  of  the  Balls  is  now  managed  with  as  much  skill  as  the 
finest  genius  in  the  infernal  regions  could  present — it  is  a  scene  that, 
including  all  which  strikes  the  eye  and  car,  more  powerfully  assaults 
the  imagination  than  any  thing  we  ever  beheld.  The  ladies,  however, 
do  not  very  much  like  to  be  put  in  the  dark,  and  when  the  house  is 
re-lighted  many  a  fair  face  betrays  some  remaining  symptoms  of  alarm 
at  the  terrific  objects  that  have  been  presented. 

The  new  Musical  Farce  of  The  Reign  of  Twelve  Hours  was  again 
favorably  received  ;  but  we  cannot  say  that  it  has  auy  other  merit 
than  that  of  admitting  Miss  Kelly  to  shew  her  comic  talents.  Mr. 
Hartley  delivers  his  wise  speeches  with  very  good  effect ;  and  Mr. 
W.  Chapman  ably  sustained  the  Courtier,  who  is  "  all  things  to  all 
men,"  and  understates  the  art  of  booing  as  well  as  Sir  Pertinaoc 
JMacsycophant  himself.  The  best  scene  in  this  piece  is  that  where 
the  Monarch  out-of-work,  feels  the  want  of  power  as  a  serious  griev- 
ance, and  where  the  fair  and  amiable  JVonrma  amuses  herself  with 
his  chagrin.  This  Farce  is  only  calculated  to  assist  in  forming  the 
required  variety  of  entertainments  of  a  season,  and  so  far  it  is  re- 
ceived with  much  good  humor. 

Mr.  Poole,  the  author  of  the  Comedy  of  Married  and  Single,  now 
in  a  course  of  successful  performance  at  the.  Haymarket  Theatre,  ha* 
published  that  piece,  with  a  preface,  in  which  he  complains  loudly 
against  Mr.  Elliston  for  some  conduct  relative  to  it. 


THE   THEATRICAL    OBSERVER 


In  consequence  of  the  unfavorable  state  of  the  weather,  Vauxhall. 
Was  not  so  well  attended  last  night ;  but  on  Monday  the  grand  Gala 
will  be  repeated. — Davis's  Amphitheatre  and  Sadler's  Wells  have 
been  attended  by  fashionable  audiences  this  week. 

It  Was  a  mistake  of  our  informant  the  other  day,  who  stated  that 
Mr.  Thompson-  was  about  to  proceed  to  Boulogne  ;  that  gentleman 
having  gone  to  Swansea  on  a  professional  trip. 

It  is  confidently  reported,  in  the  theatrical  world,  that  a  celebrated 
vocalist  is  married  to  a  wealthy  Baronet,  and  that  this  is  the  last 
season  she  will  appear  on  any  Stage.

written,  I  beg  to  address  you  on  a  subject  of  the  greatest  importance 
to  societv,  particularly  to  the  amiable  and  respectable  part  of  the 
public,  who  patronise  the  drama  ;  and  which,  I  am  sure,  requires  but 
the  aid  of  your  powerful  pen  to  call  the  attention  of  Managers  to  it, 
and  rouse  them  to  a  proper  sense  of  their  duty,  and  the  respect  which 
they  owe  the  public,  for  the  suppression  of  a  disgraceful  nuisance 
which  their  theatres  nightly  present,  in  the  presence  of  those  herds 
of  rude  and  disgusting  prostitutes  who  infest  the  boxes,  and  insult 
and  annoy,  by  their  foul  language  and  manners,  every  respectable 
person  who  may  chance  to  come  in  contact  with  them.  A  circumstance 
of  this  kind  happened  to  a  friend  of  mine  the  other  evening  at  the 
Lyceum,  who  took  his  wife  to  see  the  new  Opera,  when  the  pit  being 
full,  they  went  to  the  upper-boxes,  where,  as  soon  as  the  half-price 
door,  that  sluice-gate  of  filth,  was  opened,  they  were  immediately 
surrounded  and  disgusted  by  the?e  wretched  women,  who,  thinking 
proper  to  raise  a  quarrel  with  one  another,  upon  some  alledged  affront 
given  by  these  worthies  to  each  other,  their  language  assumed  such  a 
tone  of  clamour  and  indecency,  that  not  a  word  of  the  performance 
could  be  heard  :  but  this  was  not  the  worst  part  of  their  conduct,  for 
on  being  requested  to  be  a  little  silent,  they  returned  such  a  volley  of 
foul  abuse  that  they  were  compelled  to  quit  the  house.  Now,  Sir,  as 
I  am  sure  you  will  feel  with  me  the  enormity  of  this  evil  towards  the 
public,  and  consequent  injary  to  the  proprietors,  I  doubt  not  your  en- 
deavours to  impress  it  upon  Mr.  Arnold,  who,  I  am  persuaded,  need 
only  be  informed  of  the  fact  to  cause  it  to  be  promptly  remedied. 

I  am,  my  worthy  Sir,  vour's, 
A.B.

Twelve  Precisely  has  so  often  afforded  Mrs.CiiATTERLEY  an  oppor- 
tunity of  displaying  a  very  versatile  talent,  that  wc  need  not  dwell 
upon  her  success  as  Miss  Wildlove,  on  Saturday  night :  wc  would 
rather  proceed  to  Killing  no  Murder,  which  was  very  humorously 
acted.  Mr.  Harley,  as  Buskin,  was  entertaining  in  the  highest  de- 
gree Wc  remember  Mathews  in  this  character,  and  we  do  not  con- 
ceive it  has  lost  a  jot  of  its  original  comicality  in  the  hands  of  Har- 
ley.  No  better  proof  can  be  given  of  Mr.  H.'s  effective  fan,  than 
the  continued  laughter  and  applause  that  marked  his  appearances  on 
the  stage  in  the  various  assumed  characters.  Mr.  Liston,  as  Mr. 
Jpollo,  was  a  divine  creature,  whose  very  look  commanded  not  only 
the  Earthly  Beings  of  the  pit,  and  the  Lordly  Beings  of  the  Boxes, 
to  smile,  but  awed  the  very  Celestials  themselves  into  a  downright 
horse-laugh  ;  a  species  of  worship  most  acceptable  to  the  radiant. 
Apollo.  The  Manager  had  resolved  to  make  this  said  Saturday  night 
a  very  prototype  of  what  should  be  the  business  of  a  well-regulated 
man's  life,  namely,  to  improve  as  time  advauccs.  Thus,  we  had,  as 
a  finish,  Love  in  a  Village,  with  Miss  Paton,  as  Rosetta.  She  sang 
with  most  delightful  effect,  introducing  "  The  Banks  of  Man  Watery 
and  "  The  Gentle  Lark  ."—la  the  last  she  had  an  enthusiastic  encore. 
Whilst  speaking  of  this  young  lady,  we  beg  here  to  reply  to  an  inti- 
mation made  to  us,  viz.  that  we  were  over-partial  to  her  as  a  public 
performer.  In  the  first  place,  wc  deny  that  it  is  reasonably  in  our 
power  to  exceed  in  our  admiration  of  the  vocal  talents  and  acquire- 
ments of  Miss  Paton  ;  and  in  the  next  place,  we  would  repel  the  in- 
sinuation that  anv  undue  cause  could  make  her  our  peculiar  favorite  ; 
for,  on  the  contrary,  if  wo  were  influenced  by  unworthy  motives  for 
unfriendly  feelings  towards  her,  we  might  have  found  a  stimulous  for 
them  in  the  circumstance  of  her  having  ceased  lately  to  be  a  subscriber 
to  this  Paper,  without  any  just  offence  being  given  on  our  part.  We 
may  take  this  opportunity  to  observe,  that  so  far  from  our  being  tri- 
butary friends  of  any  performer,  we  have  rejected  at  once  many  va- 
luable offers  for  our  good  opinion  ;  and  we  challenge  every  green-room 
in  the  kingdom  to  produce  a  solitary  instance  of  such  an  opinion  of 
ours  fieing  purchased,  or  remunerated. 

Mrs.  Garrick  represented  Lucinda   with  her   usual  ability.     Mr. 
W.  Farren  acted  Justice  Woodcock,  "  for  the  fust  time,"   but  aU 


the  theatrical  observer. 


■though  he  confers  a  touch  of  humor  on  the  part,  he  committed  a  great 
error  in  converting  the  hale  and -hearty  .country  gentleman  of  sixty-five 
into  an  infirm  old  man  of  seventy  or  eighty.  He  totters  in  his  step, 
and  stoops  with  the  apparent  weight  of  years,  instead  of  shewing 
the  vigour  which  Mr.  MunI>ex  and  Mr.  Fawcett  used  correctly  to 
assume. — Mr.  Farrbn  was  encored  in  the  song.  Mr.  Melrose,  as 
Young  Meadows,  sang  with  much  taste.  Mr.  W.  West  and  Mrs.  C. 
Jones  played  Hodge  and  Madge  very  well.  Hawthorn  was  very  fairly 
done  hy  Mr.  Huckel.- — There  was  a  good  house.

When  we  mention  that  Der  Freiseh>it~,  and  The  Reign  of  Twelve 
Hours,  were  performed  on  Saturday  night  to  a  very  numerous  au- 
dience, it  is  really  as  much  as  we  can  say ;  our  stock  of  observations 
on  these  pieces  being  exhausted. 

Vauxiiall — This  evening*  a  splendid  Gala  will  be  given. 

The  John  Bull  of  yesterday,  has  the  following : — "  We  have  no 
room  for  the  long  Preface  to  ft  Married  and  Single,"  nor  in  these 
days  are  the  squabbles  of  authors  and  managers  the  least  interesting 
to  the  world.  We  remember  Mr.  Elliston,  when  he  horsewhipped  Mr, 
Rod  well,  the  box-keeper,  (who,  by  the  way,  was  attended  on  the  oc- 
casion by  his  friend  the  celebrated  Captain  O'Callaghan,)  wrote  a 
brief  and  very  angry  /  note,  in  which  lie  declared  himself  unmoved 
*  by  a  puddle  in  a  storm' — how  he  may  feel  towards  a  "  Pool  in 
a  passion,"  we  cannot  take  upon  ourselves  to  anticipate."

These  caricatures  of  English  manners,  like  Les  Jlnglaises  pour  rire, 
are  sure  to  attract  full  houses  ;  and  the  families  of  John  Bull  will,  no 
doubt,  shew  how  much  they  arc  amused  by  being  loudest  in  the  laugh 
at  the  singularities  of  their  countrymen. — //  rit  Men  qui  rit  le  dernier.

The  full  signification  of  those  two  attractive  words,  "  Der  Frci- 
schutz,"  (a  Correspondent  says)  can  only  be  explained  by  a  periphra- 
sis, and  signify  "  a  hunter  who  shoots  with  a  charmed  bullet,  which 
never  misses  the  right  mark" 

This  explanation  is  useful,  and  it  may  be  illustrated  not  only  by  Mr. 
Bennett's  prowess,  but  also  by  Mr.  Arnold's  success,  with  his  rifle, 
for  he  very  fairly  aud  copiously  bags  the  cash  every  time  his  piece  is 
presented.

Last  night,  after  Sylvester  IJaggerwood,  which  character  was  very 
humorously  acted  by  Mr.  W.  West,  Married  and  Single  was  repre- 
sented, and  the  last  piece  was  Mr.  Kenny's  pleasant  operatic  Comedy 
of  Sweethearts  and  Wives,  in  which  Madame  Vestris  sang  charm- 
ingly, and  was  encored  in  Mr.  Nathan's  delightful  air,  "  TFhy  ate 
you  wandering."  Mr.  Liston,  as  Billy  Lackaday,  was  highly  enter- 
taining, and,  as  usual,  was  made  to  sing  his  melancholy  ditty  twice. 
Mrs.  Chatterley  represented  Eugenia  in  the  most  engaging  manner, 
and  the  whole  piece'was  much  applauded.  The  new  Opera  to-night 
is  from  the  pen  of  Mr.  Kknny,  and  the  music  entirely  by  Mr.  Nathan, 
whose  science  and  taste  are  rapidly  leading  him  to  that  eminent  station 
amongst  our  musical  composers,  which  poor  Lord  Byron  deemed  him 
worthy  of.  by  writing  expressly  for  him. 

The  meaning  of  the  word  Alcaid,  is  a  Judge  or  Governor. 


To  the  Editor  of  The  'Theatrical  Observer. 
Mr.  Editor, 

A  Correspondent  stated  in  your  Paper  last  Friday  that

THE  NEW  TRAGEDY  OF  "  AGIS." 

A  new  Tragedy,  entituled  "  Agis,"  has  just  beon  published,  written 
by  a  Mr.  Harton,  who,  we  understand,  is  a  young  gentleman  of  con- 
siderable literary  promise  ;  indeed,  judging  from  this  first  effort  of 
Iiis  pen,  there  are  such  strong  indications  of  talent,  that  it  may. rea- 
sonably be  expected  the  progress  of  his  mind  in  the  branch  of  liter- 
ature he  has  now  adventured  upon,  will  terminate  in  a  full  idea  of 
every  requisite  that  judgment  and  taste  can  critically  demand.  We 
have  read  his  present  production  with  much  pleasure,  because  it  un- 
folds in  nervous  language  an  interesting  series  of  characters  connected 
with  a  portion  of  history  that  is  familiar  and  delightful  to  every  one. 
This  Tragedy  does  not  appear  to  have  been  written  for  the  stage  : — 
we  will  not  attempt  in  our  limited  space  to  enter  critically  on  the  en- 
tire merits  of  the  piece  ;  but  to  shew  the  reader  the  powers  Mr.  Har- 
ton  possesses,  we  will  present  the  following  extract. 

Agis.  My  lord,  I  bring  sad  tidings  to  your  ear, 
The  Persians  even  now  appear  in  sight, 
And  pitch  their  tents  before  Thermopyle. 

Leon.  Why  this  indeed  is  tidings  sad  enough, 
But  nothing  mora  than  what  we  have  expected. 
Still  be  assur'd,  good  Agis,  that  their  absence 
Excited  fears,  their  presence  has  expell'd. 
We  now  can  see  our  enemy — before, 
They  hover'd  round  us  like  a  thunder  cloud, 
Whence  none  could  tell  on  whom  the  bolt  would  fall. 
While  thus  they  stand,  we  see  them  where  they  are, 
And  this  at  least  we  for  our  comfort  know. 
That  only  death  shall  tell  us  where  they  will  be  ; 
But  say  how  numerous  do  their  tents  appear  ? 

Agis.  Should  I  pretend  to  enter  on  description. 
Each  word,  I  fear,  would  almost  blunt  the  credit, 
And  only  serve  to  rank  me  'mongst  the  false. 
Then  let  your  judgment  measure  for  itself, 
When  I  detail  but  simply  what  I  saw. 
Occasion  led  me  to  the  highest  cliff 
Of  cloud  capp'd  Octa,  'neath  whose  hoary  brow 
The  moon  and  stars  their  nightly  slurader  take, 
And  hide  themselves  at  each  approach  of  morn  : 
From  thence  the  eye  alternate  takes  a  view 
O'er  all  the  Locrian  and  the  Phocian  plains, 
On  one  side,  and  Thessalian  on  the  other. 
The  last  no  sooner  did  present  themselves, 
Then  not  as  formerly  the  ground  appear'd, 
Enrich'd  with  verdure  and  the  harvest  smile, 
But  camps,  as  numerous  as  the  pinion'd  tribe, 
That  sail  the  aether,  and  as  countless  too, 
My  vision  led  upon  a  boundless  sea, 
And  only  shew'd  a  resting  place  in  clouds.

"  Nothing  extenuate  nor  set  down  auglit  in  malice." 

No.  842  Wednesday,  Aug.  11,   1824.       Price  Id. 


Last  night  a  new  Opera,  entitled  a  The  Alcuid  ;  or,  the  Secrets 
of  Qflcc,"  was  presented  for  the  first  time.  It  is  written  by  Mr. 
Kennkv,  and  the  Music  composed  by  Mr.  Na-Than.  This  piece  ap- 
pears to  be  formed  on  the  model  of  some  of  those  foreign  Operas,  in 
which  the  business  of  intrigue  is  the  leading  Jtoint,  and  a  complexity 
of  plot  is  finally  attempted  to  be  briefly  and  laughable  divulged,  not 
to  the  audience,  but  to  the  characters  themselves.  Such  a  design  in- 
volves this  misfortune,  that  the  audience,  knowing  what  is  to  come, 
cannot  feel  an  interest  ^beyond  what  may  aiisc  from  looking  forward 
to  the  effect  of  the  passing  events  on  the  dramatis  personam.  It  re- 
quires great  power  and  skill  in  the  dramatist  to  supply  this  deficiency 
of  a  gradually  developed  plot  ;  and  in  Mr.  Kcnney  we  have  reason  to 
look  for  these  qualities  in  a  higher  degree  than  is  displayed  in  the 
present  Piece.  However,  the  dialogue  is  not  without  markings  of  his 
talent  ;  and  the  whole  being  excellently  performed,  and  supported  by 
the  very  tasteful  music  of  Mr.  Nathan,  did  not  fail  to  produce  a  fa- 
vorable result.  We  would  detail  the  Plot  circumstantially,  but  it  is 
far  too  difficult  a  task,  and  would  take  much  more  space  than  we  pos- 
sess. Yet  this  we  can  state  : — that  the  Alcaid,  or  Chief  Magistrate 
of  a  town  in  Spain,  is  considered  by  himself  the  most  lynx-eyed  per- 
sonage in  the  world,  He  imagines  that  he  is  able  to  penetrate  into 
the  secrets  of  every  affair  that  happens  within  the  limits  of  his  rule  ; 
but,  the  fact  is,  he  is  the  dupe  of  an  artful  Secretary,  who  justly  ob- 
serves, that  the  Alcaid  can  see  things  at  a  great  distance,  but  is  blind 
as  to  what  happens  under  his  nose.  The  Jllcaid  thinks  his  wife  do- 
mesticated and  prudent,  but  she  steals  out  at  midnight  to  a  masque- 
rade contrary  to  his  wishes,  He  imagines  his  son  Felix  so  devoted 
to  his  studies  that  he  dreads  the  loss  of  his  health,  but  the  youth  is 
only  pursuing  natural  philosophy,  that  is,  playing  the  lover.  He  sup- 
poses his  niece  Rosabel,  a  paragon  of  obedience  and  innocence,  but 
whilst  he  i3  thinking  of  giving  her  an  old  husband,  she  is  meeting  a 
young  and  gay  admirer.  He  is  convinced  that  Pedrosa,  his  secretary, 
is  the  most  honest  secretary  on  the  face  of  the  earth,  but  Pedrosa 
does  nothing  but  deceive  him  from  beginning  to  end.  The  only  person 
he  forms  any  thing  like  a  correct  notion  of,  is  Jabez,  his  servant,  but 
even  with  respect  to  him  he  is  wrong,  for  he  think3  he  is  a  Lothario 
in  his  way,  whilst  poor  Jabex  is  a  melancholy  jealous  husband.  The 
Jfcaid  even  thinks  himself  wise  and  virtuous,  but  he  is  fooled  at  all

sides,  and  is  detected  in  an  intrigue,  which  his  studious  son  is  pursuing 
at  the  same  time,  and  in  the  same  quarter.  These  unseen  qualities 
and  pursuits  of  the  Alcaid's  family,  are  cither  confided  to,  or  observed 
by  Pedrosa.  who  uses  them  like  a  wise  Officer  of  State,  to  his  own 
advantage,  and  to  the  advantage  of  the  reigning  family.  The  Music 
was  generally  admired  ;  particularly  the  overture,  the  song  of  "  My 
gauntlet's  down,"  by  Madame  Vestris,  "Haste!  haste  I  I  pray" 
by  Miss  Pa  ton,  and  the  duet  of  "  Oh !  happy,  happy  lovers,"  by 
those  ladies,  which  were  all  enthusiastically  encored.  The  concerted 
pieces  were  also  finely  executed. — The  house  overflowed  at  an  early 
hour. — It  is  to  be  repeated  every  evening  till  further  notice. 

The  following  is  a  specimen  of  the  Songs,  which  are  published  by 
Mr.  Miller,  1$q\v  Bridge  Street,  Blackfriars,  and  sold  in  the  Thea- 
tre. 

SONG — Felix— Madame  Vestris.  * 

My  gauntlet's  down,  my  flag  unfurled, 

Whatc'cr  ray  fortune  be. 
For  thee,  my  love,  I'd  lose  the  world, 

Or  win  a  world  in  thee  ! 
Yes  !  thou  shalt  be  my  polar  star. 

O'er  youth's  bewildering  tide, 
To  lands  of  promised  bliss  afar, 

My  bright  and  beaming  guide  ! 

My  gauntlet's  down,  &c, 

SONG— Jahez. 

That  wedlock's  divine, 

Mav  be  all  very  fine. 
When  a  man  has  his  happiness  handy  ; 

But  wedlock  like  mine 

Is  on  gruel  to  dine. 
Or  a  meaker  of  punch  without  brandy. 
Heighy  !  heigho  !  to  my  lot  that  it  ever  should  fall, 

Like  an  addle  brain  dunce, 

Thus  to  wed  all  at  once  ; 
And  no  I  ride-cake,  no  honey-moon,  no  nothing  at  all. 

As  for  me  and  my  fair. 

We  are  much  such  a  pair, 
As  two  squinting  eyes,  or  forlorner, 

When  one,  we  suppose, 

Is  for  ogling  the  nose, 
And  one  for  a  twist  round  the  corner. 

Heigho  !  heigho,  &c.  &C. 


We  have  only  room  to  say,  there  was  another  numerous  and  genteel 
audience  here  last  night  to  see  Der  Freischutz,  and  The  Padlock. 

Vauxhall. — We  find  that  the  Proprietors  close  the  Gardens  this 
evening,  in  order,  we  presume,  that  they  may  give  greater  effect  to  the 
Royal  Fete,  to  be  given  to-morrow,  in  honor  of  our  beloved  King, 
which,  from  report,  is  likely  to  be  very  splendid.

After  Lover's  Quarrels,  the  new  Opera  of  "  TLjc  Alcaki  ;  or,  the 
Secrets  of  Office?'  was  performed  for  the  second  time,  and  having  un- 
dergone some  judicious  curtailments,  went  off  with  superior  effect. — 
Wo  had  no  room  yesterday  to  mention  the  acting,  and  the  execution 
of  the  music,  in  a  particular  manner.  Mr.  W.  Farrex,  as  the  old 
self-sufficient  Jllcahl,  represents  this  wittol  with  rather  too  much  of 
the  air  and  manner  of  an  infinitely  older  man  than  we  should  conceive 
he  was  intended  to  bo.  Indeed,  all  Mr.  Farken's  old  gentlemen  are 
complete  antiques  ;  lean  and  slippered  pantaloons  ;  this  defect  he 
surely  can  remedy  by  assuming  a  more  vigorous  gait,  and  a  firmer 
tone.  Mr.  Listox  in  the  character  of  the  busy  Secretary  Pedrosa, 
has  more  to  do  than  any  of  the  other  persons  of  the  drama.  He  has 
abundant  opportunity  to  display  a  roguish  spirit,  but  not  very  much 
to  shew  off  his  customary  drollery.  Mr.  Hahlev  makes  a  good  deal 
of  Jabez — he  contrives  always  to  fill  up  hid  characters  with  so  much, 
pleasant  by-play,  that  he  is  sure  to  come  off  with  applause.  This 
part  is  not  exactly  in  his  best  line  of  acting,  but  his  humor  makes 
more  of  it  than  could  be  supposed.  Wu  must  be  excused  if  wo  men- 
tion Madame  Vestris  amongst  the  gentlemen.  However,  when  she 
puts  off  the  garb  of  womankind,  she  does  «ot  loso  much  of  her  at- 
tractions. So  long  as  we  can  behold  her  fine  expressive  countenance, 
observe  her  graceful  manner,  and  hear  her  harmonious  voice,  it  mat- 
ters not  whether  she  be  called  man  or  woman.  She  represented  Felix 
very  pleasingly,  and  sang  with  charming  effect.  Miss  Patox,  now, 
we  could  not  afford  to  lose  sight  of  as  a  lady — to  disrobe  her,  and 
encase  her  in  the  less  flowing  and  less  attractive  habit  of  the  Lords 
of  the  Creation,  would  be  to  deprive  her  of  those  strictly  feminine 
graces  which  bang  around  her.  Whenever  we  see  Miss  Patox,  we 
think  of  drawing-rooms,  of  balls,  and  routs  ;  and  when  we  hear  her 
sing,  we  imagine  she  is  one  of  our  party  who  obligingly  favors  us  with 
a  display  of  her  admirable  vocal  powers.  Mr.  Nathan,  the  composer 
of  the  pleasing  music  of  this  piece,  has  been  said  to  owe  much  to 
these  ladies  for  the  eminent  success  of  their  songs  ;  we  are  sure  that 
Mr.  Nathan,  and  every  composer  whose  songs  they  warble,  must 
feel  themselves  greatly  indebted  to  them,  because  the  finest  music  in 
bad  hands  must  fail.  By  the  bye,  one  of  the  newspaper  critics  says, 
that  there  arc  many  borrowed  strains  in  the  music.     This  we  deny, 


THE   THEATRICAL    OBSERVER 


Nathan  1ms  always  appeared  to  us  one  of  the  most  tasteful  and 
original  composers  of  the  present  time.  But  the  fact  is,  in  the  com- 
bination of  sounds  adapted  to  similar  expressions  by  two  different  mu- 
sicians totally  ignorant  of  each  other's  works,  there  may  be,  and 
there  has  been,  resemblances  that  could  only  be  attributed  to  the  sen- 
timent which  the  music  was  to  express,  being  felt  in  the  same  way  by 
each.  Bishop  is  charged  with  being  a  great  copyist ;  Weber,  whose 
fine  music  is  the  theme  of  admiration  in  Germany,  is  also  charged 
with  being  a  plagiarist,  although  he  has  evidently  been  guided  in  his 
compositions  by  the  subject  he  has  before  him.  In  proof  of  this,  let 
any  one  hear  the  music  in  Der  Freischutz,  and  it  will  be  remarked 
how  closely  the  music  describes  or  assimilates  with  the  events  of  the 
passing  scene.  This  could  not  be  done  but  under  the  immediate  in- 
fluence of  the  composer's  own  genius.  With  respect  to  Nathan's" 
music,  it  has  also  struck  us  as  being  exclusively  suggested  by  the 
sentiment ;  and  any  one  who  keeps  his  eye  on  the  .words  of  his  songs 
whilst  they  are  executing,  will,  we  are  sure,  be  of%a  similar  opinion. 

The  whole  of  tlus  Opera  of  TheAlcaiil  gave  the  highest  satisfaction 
last  night,  and  was  received  at  the  close  with  much  applause  by  a 
crowded  audience. — Exchange  no  Robbery  followed,  and  created  great 
mirth. 

After  Der  Freischutz,  which  attracts  as  much  as  ever,  the  plea- 
sant little  piece  of  "  I  will  have  a  Wife''  was  well  acted,  and  enter- 
tained highly.  Mr.  Bartley,  as  the  Admiral,  was  excellent ;  and 
Mr.  Pear-han  and  Miss  Povey  sang  very  agreeably. 

Davis's  Amphitheatre. — A  military  friend  of  ours  was  present  the 
other  night  at  the  performance  of  The  Battle  of  Waterloo,  and  de- 
clares that  no  stage  representation  could  come  nearer  the  realities  of 
that  glorious  battle. — The  Theatre  was  full  last  night. 

This  evening  there  will  be  a  brilliant  FETE  at  the  Royal  Gardens, 
Vauxhall.  The  Illuminations,  :hc  Pantomime,  the  Parisian  Juggler, 
Fire-works,  &c.  will  surpass  all  former  amusements  on  Gala  nights, 
being  in  honor  of  His  Majesty's  birth-day. 

To  the  Editor  of  The  Theatrical  Observer. 
Sir,  I  have  been  these  last  twelve  months  a  constant  reader,  and 
great  admirer  of  your  truly  independent,  and  largely  circulated  paper. 
I  saw  in  it,  on  Monday,  a  paragraph  respecting  Miss  Paton,  and  a- 
gree  with  you,  that  nothing  can  be  said  too  great  in  that  amiable 
lady's  praise,  both  as  to  her  public,  as  well  as  her  private  character  ; 
though  several  malicious  darts  have  been  aimed  at  her  by  wicked  and 
designing  individuals.  They  are  not  worthy  the  name  of  men  who 
would  wish  to  injure  a  defenceless  female.  But  I  hope  to  see  her 
nobly  triumph  over  those  base  and  foul  conspirators.  A.  B.

The  third  performance  of  the  new  Opera  of  "  The  Aieaid  ;  or,  the 
Secrets  of  Office,"  last  night,  proved  equally  successful  as  on  the 
previous  evenings.  The  public  rarely  glean  any  thing  about  the  re* 
petitions  of  a  new  piec«  from  the  newspapers,  for  they  rarely  trouble 
themselves  with  any  theatrical  notice  after  the  first  appearance  of 
some  novelty.  Now,  in  our  pages  the  public  have  a  sure  and  constant 
source  of  information  relative  to  the  chief  theatres,  that  does  its 
little  part  towards  assisting  in  topics  of  conversation  for  the  day. — 
After  the  manner  in  which  some  one  or  two  of  the  Newspapers  spoke 
of  the  new  Opera,  it  might  have  been  thought  that  The  Jllcaid  was 
a  total  failure  ;  but  in  our  pages  the  public  will  have  found  that  three 
successive  audiences  have  been  so  much  pleased  as  to  give  the  most 
decided  marks  of  approbation.  In  fact,  this  Opera,  if  not  the  best 
production  of  Mr.  Kenney's  pen,  it  has  its  amusing  points,  and,  at 
all  events,  is  a  good  vehicle  for  music,  as  the  situations  admit  of  the 
songs  and  chorusses  being  properly  introduced.  The  singing  of  Miss 
Patox  and  Madame  Vestris  is  delightful, and  every  one  acknowledges, 
that  the  composer,  has  well  adapted  his  music  to  their  respective 
voices.  It  seems  that  Miss  Love  had  been  intended  to  fill  the  part 
Mrs.  Garrick  represents,  and  was  to  have  had  some  songs,  but  that 
young  lady,  it  is  said,  thought  there  was  one  song  too  few  for  her; 
and  so,  alack  !  she  became  suddenly  "  indisposed."  Now,  if  this  is 
really  the  case,  it  must  be  considered  that  the  young  lady  has  done  a 
manifest  injury  to  Mr.  Kenney,  Mr.  Nathan,  and  the  establishment 
that  pays  her  for  her  services.  After  an  author  and  a  composer  have 
relied  on  the  talents  of  a  particular  performer,  shaped  the  character, 
and  prepared  the  music  to  the  peculiar  powers  of  the  person  in  ques- 
tion, surely  it  is  an  act  of  great  injustice,  on  account  of  a  trifling  ba- 
lance of  superiority  thrown  into  certain  other  characters,  to  refuse 
all  assistance  in  completing  that  general  effect  which  was  proposed. — 
These  throwin g-ttp  of  parts  are  also  generally  most  injudicious  as  to 
the  performer's  own  reputation.  English  audiences  like  good  nature  ; 
and  in  the  present  instance,  had  Miss  Love  undertaken  "the  character, 
what  she  might  have  expected  the  public  would  have  said  on  the  sub- 
ject, (considering  the  character  less  than  her  talents  were  competent 
to)  is,  "  Miss  Love  had  given  a  proof  of  her  good  sense  and  kind 
feeling  in  undertaking  it."     But   now,    the   most   widely  circulated 


THE   THEATRICAL   OBSERVER 


Journals  have  hinted  at  the  real  cause  of  her  "  indisposition,"  and  it 
will  not  add  to  her  popularity.  Miss  Lovb  has  only  to  recover  quickly, 
and  do  us  the  pleasure  of  appearing  in  Mr.  Kkxnby's  Opera,  and  all 
will  he  well.  Whilst  we  make  these  observations,  do  not  let  it  be  sup- 
posed that  any  slight  is  intended  to  Mrs.  Garrick,  who  so  kindly  un- 
dertook the  character  of  Donna  Francisco,  at  a  short  notice  ;  but 
that  lady  will  acknowledge  when  music  is  adapted  to  one  particular 
quality  of  voice,  it  cannot  be  sung  by  another  of  different  quality  with 
proper  effect.  Thus  the  songs  of  Donna  Francisca  are  left  out  en- 
tirely, and  the  composer's  labour  so  far  thrown  away.

To-night  is  the  twentieth  time  of  the  performance  of  Der  Fret" 
schutz,  and  every  night  there  has  been  a  crowded  and  fashionable 
audience.  It  is  certainly  a  very  curious  piece,  and  in  after  times  any 
one  who  had  not  seen  it,  would  be  very  apt  to  say.  "  Well,  I'm  sorry 
I  did  not  go  and  see  that  Der  Freisc/iutz."  There  is  no  knowing 
how  much  longer  it  is  to  be  acted,  for  Managers  themselves  like  va- 
riety.so  we  recommend  those  who  have  not  seen  the  piece  to  go  quickly. 

Vauxhall. — Last  evening  these  Gardens  "  put  on  all  their  beauty 
and  brilliancy."  From  an  early  hour  the  company  began  to  assemble, 
and  the  gardens  were  soon  filled. — The  orchestra  was  under  the  con- 
troul  of  Mr.  Rooke  ;  the  overture  from  Der  Freischutz  was  very  ef- 
fectively performed,  and  there  was  a  song  "  Even  as  the  Sun,"  by 
Miss  WiTham,  a  young  lady  of  considerable  promise.  There  were 
many  beautiful  devices  in  the  fire-works.  Up  to  an  advanced  hour 
this  morning,  waltzes,  quadrilles,  and  Scotch  reels  were  kept  up,  and 
we  think  there  were  not  less  than  20,000  persons  present.

There  was  a  very  excellent  attendance  here  last  night,  to  see  the 
Opera  of  Der  Freischutz,  and  the  Musical  Farce  of  The  Reign  of 
Twelve  Hours.  In  the  former  piece,  Mr.  Braha.m,  Miss  Noel,  Miss 
Holdaway,  &c.  sang  charmingly;  and  in  the  latter  piece,  the  acting 
of  Miss  Kelly,  Mr.  Hartley,  Mr.  Pearman.  and  Mr.  W.  Chapman, 
was  received  with  considerable  applause.  IMiss  Stephens  is  arrived 
in  town,  and  appears  here  to-night  as  Agnes  in  Der  Freischutz

Silvester  Daggerwood  was  the  first  piece  last  night,  in  which  Mr.  W. 
West,  Mr.  Williams,  and  Mr.  Ebsworth  were  very  amusing.  The 
new  Opera  followed,  and  again  met  a  very  favorable  reception.  High 
Life  below  Stairs,  concluded  the  entertainment*,  in  which  Messrs. 
Listox,  Harley,  Cooper,  and  Johnson,  were  were  well  laughed  at  ; 
Mrs.  C.  Jones,  Mrs.  Gibbs,  and  Mrs.  Garrick,  had  their  share  of  ap- 
plause.— The  duet  by  Miss  Paton  and  Madame  Vestris  was,  as  it 
always  is,  encored. — The  house  was  very  full. 

Mr.  Flemmington,  the  celebrated  Ventriloquist,  who  gave  an  intro- 
ductory performance,  at  the  Argyll  Rooms,  before  His  Royal  High- 
ness the  Duke  of  Sussex,  and  a  select  party,  will  make  Ids  first  public 
appearance  at  The  Argyll  Rooms,  on  Monday  evening  next,  in  a  Mu- 
sical and  Ventriloquial  Performance,  embracing  original  matter  and 
selections  from  the  "  Trip  to  Paris,"  and  "  Rogueries  of  Nicholas," 
in  which  he  will  display  numerous  nouvelle  specimens  of  Ventriloquy. 
The  voices  of  the  fictitious  characters  will  appear  perfectly  natural 
and  unstrained,  and  be  produced  without  the  least  exertion  or  move- 
ment of  the  lips  or  body. — The  songs  are  to  be  accompanied.    - 

The  tragedy  of  Hamlet  has  been  brought  out  at  the  Theatre  at 
Naples,  in  the  form  of  a  ballet.  In  the  last  scene,  amidst  peals  of 
thunder  and  clouds  of  smoke,  Hamlet  stabs  the  King,  and  the  Ghost 
appears  to  testify  his  satisfaction.  The  piece  abounds  with  the  most 
grotesque  dances,  delightful  music,  and  splendid  dresses. 

A  brother  of  a  noble  Duke  is  said  to  be  the  husband  of  a  justly 
popular  and  icientific  warbler.  Report  states  the  lady  to  have  been 
led  to  the  hymeneal  altar  so  long  ago  as  March  last,  in  the  city  of 
York. — British  Press. 

Miss  Chester,  by  the  advice  of  Dr.  Philip,  is  gone  into  the  country 
for  ten  days  to  recruit  her  health.  Mrs.  Chatterley  will  assume  her 
part  in  Sweethearts  and  Wives  during  her  short  secession  from  the 
stage. 


THE   THEATRICAL    OBSERVER 


RUSSIAN  THEATRICALS. 
The  following  extract  of  n  letter  from  St.  Petersburgh,  dated  May 
the  3d,  gives  us  a  faint  idea  how  one  of  the  best  plays  of  our  immor- 
tal Bard  has  been  mutilated   (both  in  Hs  translation  and  adoption)  in 
one  of  the  principal  cities  of  the  Russian  Empire  : — 

"  As  I  have  now  enumerated  the  principal  amusements   of  the  city, 

with  the  exception  of  theatrical  ones,  I  shall  proceed  to  relate  to  you 

to  what  a  high  pitch  of  refinement   the  Russians   have  arrived  at  in 

that  respect,  by  describing  to  you  the  performances  at  the  theatre  on 

Monday  evening  last,  which,  commenced  with  Shakspearevs  tragedy  of 

Othello.     Othello  appeared   in   a  military  cocked  hat,  Russian   boots, 

and  something  over  his  shoulders  more,  resembling  a  Roman  toga  than 

any  other  theatrical  apparel  which  I  can  liken  to  it.  'J  he  Senators  all 

wore  large  helmets  and  sandals':     This,  as   you   may  imagine,  had   a 

most  ridiculous  effect.     Cassio  appears  to   ho  drinking  with    a  mixed 

company  in  a  tavern,  when  lago  outers  and  sings  a  song,  the   subject 

of  which  is,  that  Englishmen  can  never  fijjht  til!  they  have  eaten  roast 

beef  and  drank  sufficient  to  make   them  insensible   of  what  they  are 

doing.  lago  and  Cas.sio  then  danced  a  mock  minuet,  when  Cassio  sang 

a  song,  and  the  other  characters  joined  in  chorus.     In  the  fight  which 

took  place  between  Cassio  and  Roderigo,  the  seat  of  the  latter  was 

pierced  first  by  Cassio,  and  then  by  lago.     Roderigo,  after  about  half 

a  dozen  somersets,  (after  the  style  of  Grimaldi)  tumbled  down  at  the 

back  of  the   stage.     A  wheel-barrow  was   then  brought  on   the  stage, 

guarded  by  a  file  of  soldiers,  into  which  were  placed  both  Cassio  and 

Roderigo,  and  wheeled  off.   Othello  smothered  JJesdemona  with  a  pillow 

at  least  six  feet  in  length.     Emilia  then  came  running  in,   pursued  by 

her  husband  with  a  naked  sword  in  his  hand,  who  aiming  it  at  his  wife, 

struck  Othello,  and  both  immediately  fell  to  fighting,  when  Iago  was 

mortally  wounded,  and  drove  off  in  the  same  barrow  which  conveyed 

away  Cassio  and  Roderigo.     Othello  then   rushed  to  the  back  of  the 

stage,  and  after  imprinting  a  few  kisses  on  the  cheek  of  his  murdered 

wife,  fell  on  his  sword,  and  then  died.  The  house  was  very  full,  it  being 

the  fust  night  of  its  being  performed  in   St.  Petersburgh.     The  house 

is  smaller  than  the  Haymarket,  and  lighted  with  oil,   which  causes  a 

most  disagreeable  smell.     I  think  from  J  his  description  which  I   have 

furnished  you  with,  you  will   perceive  what   conception  the   Russians 

have  of  one  of  the  most   deservedly  admired  Tragedies  of  the  first 

tragic  genius  of  the  world/'

No.  846  Monday,  Aug.  16,   1824.  Price  Id. 

Miss  Stephens  made  her  first  appearance  on  this  stage  on  Satur- 
day night,  and  was  received  by  a  numerous  and  genteel  audience,  with 
those  customary  marks  of  public  admiration  and  esteem  which  she  so 
eminently  merits  for  her  professional  talents  and  private  virtues. — 
When  we  thus  find  the  most  delightful  accomplishment  in  the  posses- 
sion of  an  amiable  young  lady,  its  value  is  infinitely  enhanced,  and 
we  can  enjoy  every  fine  expression  of  sentiment  poured  upon  our  senses 
amidst  a  flood  of  melody,  without  an  intrusive  thought  to  disturb  its 
interesting  purity,  from  the  circumstance  of  knowing  that  there  is  not 
any  incorrectness  of  conduct,  or  deficiency  of  generous  feeling.  A 
wantou  may  warble  deliciously,  and  command  the  applause  that  vocal 
skill  elicits  at  the  moment  of  its  display,  but  no  sympathetic  cord  of 
the  heart  is  touched,  and  we  admire  without  any  of  that  feeling  which 
does  honour  to  human  nature.  Not  so  with  respect  to  Miss  Stephens, 
who  has  passed  through  the  ordeal  of  a  Iheatrical  life  unspotted, 
and  has  thus  obtained  the  respect  and  regard  of  all.  The  character 
of  */7g??es,  in  the  new  Opera  of  Der  Freischuiz,  was  the  one  selected 
for  Miss  Stephens's  debut  here  ;  and  the  cause  of  her  taking  this  part 
in  the  room  of  Miss  Noel,  is  very  candidly  and  justly  stated  by  the 
Manager  in  the  following  terms  : — 

*'  Miss  STEPHENS  having  arrived  in  London,  in  pursuance  of  her  engage- 
ment to  this  Theatre,  was  to  have  performed  in  a  new  -Comic  Opera,  prepared 
expressly  for  her  First  Appearance  ;  but  the  unabated  and  unprecedented  at- 
traction of  DER  FREISCHUTZ  has  rendered  it  impossible,  from  due  respect 
to  Public  curiosity,  to  suspend  the  representations  of  that  very  extraordinary 
production  :  and  in  order  that  the  musical  world  may,  at  the  same  time,  be  gra- 
tified by  the  pledged  performances  of  this  distinguished  favorite.  Miss  Ste- 
phens has  been  prevailed  on  by  the  Manager  to  wave  her  scruples  in  regard 
to  dispossessing  Miss  Noei,  of  a  part  which  she  has  heretofore  sustained  with 
bo  much  credit  and  ability,  (and  which  Miss  Noel  has  cheerfully  resigned  to 
such  distinguished  talent)  and  to  perform  the  character  of  Agnes,  with  addition- 
al Songs  bv  Weber,  during  the  short  term  of  her  Engagement  ;  she  will  ap- 
pear, for  the  Second  Time,  tujs  Evening." 

Mi?s  Stephens  executed  the  fine  music  of  Weber  in  the  most  de- 
lightful manner.  The  scena  was  given  in  a  manner  that  stilled  the 
audience  into  a  depth  of  attention,  which  was  terminated  by  excla- 
mations of  "  beautiful  !"  and  the  most  enthusiastic  applause,  Mr. 
Braham,  also,  gave  all  his  songs  in  the  most  chaste  and  beautiful 
style.  "  Good  night  /*  was  sung  by  him,  in  particular,  with  superior 
eilectt 


THE   THEATRICAL    OBSERVER 


The  Alcaid  was  rcceh'ed  on  Saturday  night  with  great  favour, 
and  several  of  the  songs  were  encored.  The  following  duet  by  Miss 
Paton  and  Madame  Vestris,  is  constantly  called  for  a  second  time. 

Oh  !  happy,  happy,  happy  lovers  ! 

Happy  youth,  and  happy  maid, 
When  tremblingly  each  heart  discovers 
All  its  love  by  love  repaid. 

Grateful  bosoms  beat. 
Raptured  glances  meet, 
Tn  a  gentle  sigh. 
All  your  sorrows  die — 
Oh  !  happy,  happy,  happy  lovers  ! 
Happy  youth,  and  happy  maid  ! 

Hope's  dream  delighting, 
Past  pangs  requiting. 
Thoughts  full  of  heaven,  confining  and  free  ; 
No  void  left  aching, 
Tender  hearts  breaking, — 
When  will  that  day  come  for  you  and  for  me  ! 

Oh  S  happy,  happy,  &c.  &c. 

"  *  The  whole  of  the  Songs  are  published  by  Mr.  Miller,  New  Bridge  Street, 
Blackfriars,  and  may  be  had  in  the  Theatre. 

Vauxhall — The  Proprietors  intend  this  evening  to  exhibit  their 
Gardens,  with  the  same  matchless  splendour  as  on  the  King's  Birth 
Day,  in  honor  of  His  Royal  Highness  the  Duke  of  York. 

Mr.  Flemmington,  the  Ventriloquist,  is  to  perform  this  evening,  at 
the  Argyll  Rooms. 

Miss  Love. — We  have  received  the  following  Letter,  in  reference 
to  our  observations,  in  our  number  of  Friday  last,  on  this  young  lady 
not  performing  in  Mr.  Kenney's  Opera  as  was  proposed.  We  will  not 
take  upon  us  to  say,  that  Miss  Love  is  not  at  present  unwell,  which 
every  one  must  regret,  but  we  would  ask  her  this  question — did  she 
not  shew  some  objection  to  her  list  of  Songs  in  The  Jllcaid  ;  and  was 
she  not  immediately  after,  announced  to  be  "  indisposed  v>  We  do 
not  make  this  enquiry  with  a  view  to  insist  upon  that  "  indisposition" 
being  assumed,  but  merely  to  vindicate  ourselves  for  the  remarks  we 
made. 

To  the  Editor  of  The  Theatrical  Observer. 

Sir — I  am  not  a  little  surprised,  knowing  your  general  liberality,  that  you 
should  have  mentioned  the  illness  of  Miss  Love  in  the  way  you  have,  for  it  is 
out  of  the  power  of  any  one  to  say  that  Miss  Love  has  not  always  proved  her- 
self ready  to  appear  before  the  public,  when  occasion  requires,  and  it  is  well 
known  that  she  has  taken  characters  far  above  her  powers,  when  the  illness  of 
other  performers  have  prevented  them  from  taking  their  own  parts.  Miss  Love 
is  really  unwell,  or  she  would  not  disappoint  her  patrons  and  friends.  I  am 
sure  you  will  correct  your  error,  and  your  informant,  whoever  he  is,  ought  to 
come  forward  and  publicly  declare  fcfee  error  he  has  fallen  into,  and  do  justice 
to  a  truly  amiable  and  deserving  female. 

I  am,  Sir,  A  Constant  Readeb  of  your  Journal.

i^ap^iiariict  --£Ijcatre» 

Lover's  Quarrels  was  the  riist  piece  last  night ;  and  was  eery 
pleasantly  noted.     This  plan  of  giving  a  short  Farce  for  the   opening 
of  the  performances,  is   very  judicious,  as  it  affords  time   for   those 
whose  occupations  or  habits  make  it  inconvenient  to  go  to  the  Theatre 
earlier  than  half-past  seven  or  eight  o'clock.     By  the  present  arrange- 
ment, such  persons  can  arrive  in  time  for  the  remaining  performances, 
and  see   them   complete,  instead   of  finding,  as   is  customary  in   our 
Theatres  at  the  hour  alluded  to,  one  act  of  the  three  or  rive  act  piece 
over.     Accordingly,    the   commencement   of  the   new   Opera   of  The 
Alcaid  can  be  easily  reached  after  a  six  o'clock  dinner.   This  attention 
to  the  fashionable  world  is  highly  commendable,   because  it  favors  the 
patronage  of  the  stage  by  the  higher  classes,  a  point  which,  if  more  at- 
tended to  by  the  Managers  of  our  "  National  Theatres,"  might  brinb' 
back  the  British  Stage  to   the  degree   of  fashionable  distinction   en- 
joyed by  that  Italian  Stage  in  our  British  metropolis,  wlrch  has  with 
po  anti-English  a  feeling,  been  honored  with  the  title  of  "  The  King's 
Theatre."     Wc  may  here  take  the  opportunity  of  replying   to  some 
remarks  that  have  been  made  upon  our  paying  so  little   attention  to 
the  Italian  Theatre  in  the  Haymarket.     The  fact  is,  wc  are  inclined 
to  promote  the  interests  of  that  native  talent   which  wc  conceive  is  as 
worthy  of  admiration  as  any  of  foreign  growth.     Yet,  we  are  not  so 
illiberal  as  to  shut  out  talent  because  it  i3  foreign  ;  but  we  shall  ever 
strenuously  object   to  the  Royal  patronage  being  bestowed  in  an  es- 
pecial manner,  not   only  on  foreign  performers,  but   on   a  species  of 
entertainment   very  far  from  being  accordant  with  English  feelings. — 
We  do  not   say  there  should  be  no  Italian  Stage,  but  wc  do  say,  tlm 
Italian  Stage  should    not   have   the   shadow  of  superiority  over  the 
British  Stage.     Wc  will  only  add,  that   we  trust   His  Majesty;  who 
is  an  Englishman  at  heart,  may  be  pleased  to  take  the   view   of  this 
subject  that  we  do,  and  render  the  Stage  of  his  own  Country  the  first 
honor.     Miss  Pa  ton  and  Madame  Vestkts,  in    The  Alcaid,  sang  de- 
lightfully.    We  are  happy  to  say,  that  Miss  Love  appeared  last  night 
in  the  character  intended  for  her  in  this  Opera.     She  gave  her  songs 
with  much  effect,  and  received  considerable  applause. — It  was  with  no 
feelings  of  hostility  to  this  lady  that  wc  made  the  remarks  we  offered. 

Love,  Law,  and  Physic  was  acted,  for  the  first  time  this  season  ; 
Mr.  Liston's,  Lubin  Log,  and  Mr.  Barley's  Flexible,  were  highly 
amusing,  the  latter  gentleman  was  encored  in  "  The  Humours  of  a 
Playhouse.'*  Mi.  Wilkinson,  as  Andrew,  was  well  received,  and  the 
other  ladies  and  gentlemen,  played  the  minor  characters  with  consi- 
derable spirit. — The  house  was  full' in  all  parts.  * 


THE   THEATRICAL    OBSERVER. 


Miss  Stephens  and  Mr.  Braham  again  gave  the  music  in  Der 
Freischutz  with  the  finest  effect,  and  received  immense  applause. 
The  after-pieces  of  Military  Tactics  and  Love  among  the  Roses  were 
amusing. — The  house  was  crowded. 

Vauxhall. — Did  not  the  proprietors  of  these  Gardens  feel  "  that 
idle  wishes  are  very  idle  things/'  they  would,  we  presume,  wish  that 
every  evening  on  which  their  entertainments  opened  fell  on  a  royal 
birth-day  ;  and  in  this  wish  they  woul'1  be  very  excusable,  from  the 
overflow  of  visitors  which  thronged  to  this  favorite  summer  promenade 
on  the  King's  birth-day,  and  on  last  evening,  in  honor  of  the  anni- 
versary of  the  birth-day  of  the  Duke  of  York  The  crowds  were  im- 
mense— the  fire-works  most  brilliant,  and  the  music,  vocal  and  in- 
strumental, delightful,  and  the  very  ham  and  chickens  seemed  better 
than  ever. — Such  is  the  effect  of  the  magic  of  this  paradise. 

The  Battle  of  JFaterloo  continues  to  draw  crowded  houses  to  Mr. 
Davis's  Theatre  in  the  Westminster  Road. 

Mr.  Flemmixgtox  was  mo9t  nattering  received,  last  night,  at  the 
Argyll  Rooms. 

To  the  Editor  of  The  Theatrical  Observer. 

Sin, 

Seeing  my  Letter  to  you  inserted  to  day,  and  your  explanation, 
with  two  or  three  questions  in  it,  I  will  answer  them.  Miss  Love  did 
make  some  slight  objections  to  the  songs-  intended  for  her  in  "  The 
Alcaid"  for  they  were  not  exactly  suited  to  her  powers,  and  I  trust 
she  was  right  in  the  objection,  for  there  was  then  time  for  them  to  be 
altered  ;  aud  that  she  was  announced  to  be  indisposed  shortly  after 
that,  is  also  true,  but  is  that  any  reason  why  her  illness  should  be 
assumed,  because  she  had  made  some  objections  to  her  part.  I  think 
the  supposition  is  very  unfair;  but  Miss  Love  has  vindicated  herself, 
in  coming  forward  to  take  the  part,  originally  intended  for  her,  as 
soon  as  she  recovered  herself  sufficiently  to  perform.

Our  inventinc  genius  hardly  affords  us  a  change  of  terms  where- 
with to  eutertain  our  readers  on  the  subject  of  Der  Freischutz.  If 
we  understood  the  German  tongue,  it  might  be  a  little  variety  to  give 
our  sentiments  over  again  in  that  language,  which  would  enable  us, 
at  least,  to  give  some  additional  weight  to  our  remarks.  The  best 
tiling'  we  can  say  of  this  extraordinary,  and  therefore  attractive  ope- 
ratic drama,  is,  that  the  appearance  of  the  interesting  Miss  Ste- 
phens, in  Agne3,  a$? this  Theatre,  has,  as  a  punning  friend  observes, 
given  fresh  shoots  to  the  "  Freischutz." 

His  Royal  Highness,  the  Duke  of  Sussex,  Prince  Esterhazy, 
the  Countesses  of. Guildford  and  Paulett,  the  Countess  Lieven, 
Ladies  Pccock,  Francis,  and  Bellingham,  the  Marquis  of  Bute, 
and  Colonel  Berkeley,  were  among  the  visitors — The  house  was 
tilled  in  every  part  at  an  early  hour.

Jl  Day  Jlfter  the  JFedding,  The  jJlcaid,  with  Married  and  Single, 
were  performed  last  night  to  a  full  house.  In  the  first  piece  Mr.  Vis- 
ing and  Mrs.  Gibes,  were  highly  amusing,  and  at  its  conclusion  Mr. 
Vining  came  forward  to  apologize  for  the  absence  of  Mr.  Williams, 
whom  he  said  was  taken  suddenly  ill,  but  Mr.  Lee  would,  with  their 
leave,  appear  as  Gregorio,  which  character  he  supported  highly  re- 
spectable.    Miss  Paton  and  Madame  Vestris  were  encored. 

Sadler's  Wells. — We  are  happy  to  find  this  pleasing  and  deserving 
establishment  has  once  more  regained  its  wonted  popularity.  Much 
is  due  to  the  spirited  and  determined  exertions  of  the  proprietors,  for 
the  rank  it  holds  amongst  the  other  minor  establishments.  The  en- 
tertainments are  such  as  cannot  fail  to  be  attractive,  possessing,  as 
they  do,  both  talent  and  variety ;  -and  from  their  continued  display  of 
every  novelty,  they  are  entitled  to  the  approbation  they  nightly  re- 
ceive. A  new  musical  piece  was  brought  forward  on  Monday  last,  en- 
titled The  Mistakes  of  a  <Vight7  which  had  a  very  favorable  reception 
The  united  efforts  of  the  actors  created  the  greatest  mirth  throughout 
the  piece  ;  and  it  was  announced  for  repetition  during  the  week  amidst 
general  applause.  Miss  Vincent  is  delighting  her  auditory  with  her 
inimitable  versatile  powers,  in  a  clever  written  production,  called 
Disguises ;  or,  Two  Stages  from  Gretna.  It  is  full  of  whim,  va- 
riety, and  bustle,  and  is  rendered  doubly  effective  by  the  exertions  of

this  highly  gifted  child.  The  comic  Pantomime  is  increasing  in  po- 
pularity nightly ;  the  opening,  which  is  well  delineated,  and  very 
splendid,  is  by  that  celebrated  artist  Greenwood  ;  but  we  understand 
the  comic  part  of  it  is  produced  by  the  unrivalled  (trimaldi. — Hart- 
land's  Clown  is,  as  usual,  excellent.  On  Monday  next,  we  observe, 
is  fixed  for  the  Benefit  of  Grimaldi,  the  "  Clown  of  Clowns,"  whose 
powers  still,  and  ever  must  remain  in  the  recollection  of  the  public. — 
We  are  happy  to  hear,  that  after  an  illness  of  twelve  months,  he  in- 
tends appearing  on  this  occasion  in  his  "  native  element,"  (the  above 
Theatre,)  and  his  son  is  announced  for  the  Clown  on  that  evening, 
whose  pretensions  to  the  profession  approach  nearer  to  his  father's 
excellence  than  any  we  have  yet  seen  upon  the  stage. — We  heartily 
wish  him  a  bumper.

Sir, 

I,  in  common  with  many  others,  am  desirous  of  calling  the 
attention  of  the  management  of  the  Haymarkct  Theatre  to  a  regu- 
lation, existing,  I  believe,  exclusively  at  that  Theatre,  which  is  that 
the  doors  open  at  six  o'clock  ;  from  which  circumstance,  any  person 
going  to  the  pit,  is  obliged  (if  the  performances  be  very  attractive) 
to  lose  half  an  hour,  in  order  to  be  in  time  for  a  good  seat.  I  wish 
}ou  could  prevail  on  the  worthy  management  to  open  the  doors  at 
half-past  six  in  future,  which  would  confer  a  great  service  on

The  Opera  of  JJer  Freischulz  was  again  repealed  last  night,  for 
the  24th  time.  Mr.  Braham  and  Miss  Stephens  sang  their  songs 
with  beautiful  effect,  and  were  rapturously  applauded.  Mr.  Bennett 
acted  Casper  uncommonly  well,  and  was  flatteringly  received.— The 
other  characters  were  well  sustained.  The  Musical  Entertainment  of 
"  /  will  have  a  ff^ife,"  followed,  in  which  Mr.  Bartley,  Mr.  Power, 
Mr.  Pearman,  Miss  Povey,  &c.  acted  very  humorously. — There  was 
an  excellent  house.

The  amusing  one  act  piece  of  Lovers  Quarrels  was  well  acted  last 
night,  by  Mr.  W.  West,  Mr.  Johnson,  Mr.  Ens  wo  rtii,  Mrs  Gibes. 
and  Mrs.  Clifford.  The  new  Opera  of  The  Jlvaicl,  followed,  m 
which  Mr.  Farren,  Liston,  Harley,  Madame  Vestris,  and  Miss 
Paton',  were  highly  applauded.  After  which,  the  Farce  of  X,  Y,  Z, 
was  performed  here,  for  first  time  this  season.  Mr.  Liston's  .Neddy 
Bray,  and  Harlev's  Boscius  Jilldross,  (first  time)  were  excellent; — 
Mr.  W.  West's  Ralph  Hempseed,  was  very  respectable,  and  he  re- 
ceived coii3ideiablc  applause.  Miss  Boyce,  and  Mrs.  Windsor,  were 
highly  amusing  as  J\Irs.  Jllouser,  and  Dora  JWumvjelL 

It  is  reported  that  a  lively  actress,  whose  performance  in  the  drama 
of  Sweethearts  and  fVives,  has  been  so  much  and  justly  admired, 
will  shortly  assume  the  latter  character  in  real  life. — British  Press. 

Mrs.  Siddons  and  a  large  party,  en  famille,  are  enjoying  the  baths 
and  sea  breezes  at  Dover,  where  she  has  taken  one  of  the  new  houses

Birmingham  Theatre. — The  tragedy  of  Caius  GraccJius  was  an- 
nounced for  representation  on  Monday  last  ;  the  two  principal  cha- 
racters to  be  sustained  by  Mr.  Warde  and  Miss  Jarman.  Hamlet  was 
to  be  repeated  on  Wednesday,  to  enable  Mr.  Warde  to  re-appear  in 
that  character  ;  and  The  Hypocrite  is  to  be  played  on  Thursday. — 
Mrs.  G.  Kemble's  Comedy  of  Smiles  and  Tears  is  to  be  acted  on 
Friday  under  Masonic  patronage.  Mr.  Warde  and  Mr.  Shuter  have 
represented  Doctor  Cantwell  and  Maw-worm,  in  The  Hypocrite,  with 
much  effect. — That  Play  drew  an  overflowing  house.  It  was  produced, 
no  doubt,  as  an  aid  to  Mr.  Blnn's  pamphlet,  versus  the  anti-theatrical 
Puritan. 


THE   THEATRICAL   OBSERVER 


To  the  Editor  of  The  Theatrical  Observer. 

Sir — As  the  pages  of  your  respectable  publication  are  less  occupied 
during  the  present  season,  with  criticism  upon  what  is  termed  the  le- 
gitimate drama,  you  will  probably  oblige  a  constant  reader  with  the 
following  remarks  upon  the  performances  and  performers  of  the  JVew 
Surrey  Theatre,  which  the  daily  bills  announce  to  be  under  an  "  entire 
new  management  ;"  now  whether  this  be  really  so,  or  not,  I  do  not 
know  ;  but  this  I  do  know,  that  the  conduct  of  what  comes  before 
the  audience  is  totally  different  to  what  it  was,  prior  to  such  announce- 
ment ;  and  as  I  am  one  of  those  constant  frequenters,  who  did  not 
fail  to  express  my  disapprobation.  I  feel  I  ought  to  make  the  amende, 
by  applauding  the  very  evident  reformation  ;  and  I  am  not  acquainted 
with  any  means  so  effectual  as  through  the  medium  of  your  widely 
circulated  and  impartial  Observer. 

The  performances  produced  on  Monday  night,  and  advertised  for 
the  week,  are  such  as  might  pass  current  at  either  of  the  winter  es- 
tablishments ;  but  the  melo-draraa  that  has  particularly  elicited  these 
observations,  is  entitled  The  Burning  Bridge ;  the  scene  of  which 
lies  in  China,  and  has  given  an  opportunity  to  the  artists  for  a  display 
of  talent  unequalled  by  any  of  their  brethren  of  the  brush  or  pencil, 
in  any  Minor  Theatre,  and  places  them  upon  an  equality  with  the  first 
scene,  or  Diorama  painters  of  the  day.  The  costume  does  equal  cre- 
dit to  those  concerned  ;  it  is  correct,  chaste,  and  splendid,  and  all 
the  parapharnalia  corresponds.  The  performers  are  equally  entitled 
to  praise  ;  and  first  H.  Kemble,  by  judiciously  suppressing  his  accus- 
tomed violence,  rendered  his  Tartar  maniac  more  effective  than  is 
alwavs  the  case  in  similar  characters,  and  his  auditors  marked  their 
sense  of  his  propriety  by  just  applause.  Rowbotham  did  great  justice 
to  the  (supposed)  consiience-stricken  father.  Hemmi.ngs  should  throw 
a  little  more  animation  into  his  passion  for  the  fair  Celinda,  as  it 
lacked  a  little  the  air  of  reality,  but  yet  was  highly  respectable. — 
Auld  and  Harwood  were  also  deserving  credit.  Celinda,  the  heioine, 
fell  to  the  lot  of  Mrs.  Loveday,  and  though  totally  opposite  to  what 
I  had  previously  conceived  to  be  her  forte,  she  did  ample  justice  to 
her  character ;  the  dialogue  she  delivered  with  natural  simplicity  and 
truth  ;  and  her  attention  to  the  most  minute  characteristics  of  her 
dress,  rendered  her  identity  as  complete  as,  I  conceive,  scenic  illusion 
will  allow.  This  lady's  versatility  and  uniform  attention  to  whatever 
she  has  to  do,  little  or  much,  would  render  her  a  great  acquisition  to 
any  Theatre  ;  and  if  she  perseveres,  it  is  not  too  much  to  predict 
that  better  things  await  her  than  are  to  be  met  with  in  a  Minor 
Theatre.  Mrs.  Young,  as  her  attendant,  sang  a  comic  duet  with 
Harwood,  and  acquitted  herself  with  respectability:  as  did  all  the 
subordinate  characters,  and  the  curtain  fell  amidst  cheers,  real  cheers 
of  applause.  I  am,  your  Constant  Reader,

Mrs.  Chatterley  repeated  her  Twelve  Precisely  for  the   100th 
time  we  imagine.     She  is  certainly  very  clever  in  it,  and  shews  a 
great  deal  of  spirit,  and  a  very  versatile  talent.     After   this  display 
of  disguises,  we  had  the   amusing  Operatic   Comedy  of  Sweethearts 
and  Wives.     Mr.  Kenney  has  in  this  piece,  suited  tho  leading   cha- 
racters so  well  to  their  several  representatives,  aad  the  dialogue  is  so 
a  musing,  .and  at  times  interesting,  that  it  always  proves  very  acceptable 
to  the  public,  and,  accordingly,  there  was   a  very  crowded  house. — 
Mr.  Ltston's   Billy  Lackaday  is  entertaining  in  the  highest  degree, 
and  the  author   has  been  most  fortunate   in  having  this  unique   per- 
former to  fill  the  part.     Indeed,  like  the  characters  of  Crockery  and: 
Peter  Phstoral, ;  which  were  fitted  exclusively  for  the  late  Mr.  Tokely, 
Billy  Lackaday  has  been  made  to  measure  for  Liston  with  great  ac- 
curacy ;  and  we   conceive  the  above  named   characters    afforded    the- 
hint  to  Mr.  Kenney,  as  Billy  is   a  compound   of  both.     By  the  bye, 
we  should  like  to  see  Mr.  Liston,  in  Crockery  ,•  there  is  no  doubt  but' 
he  would  rendoT  it  highly  laughable,  particularly  as  there  are  so  many 
view  miseries  for  him  to  indulge  in..    Mr.  W.  Farren  did  the  old  Ad- 
miral  extremely  well.     Mrs.  Chatterley,  since   Miss  Chester's  re- 
tirement, has  filled  the  part   of  Eugenia,  and  gives  to  it  the  greatest 
interest.     Indeed,  she  acts  this   character,  as  she  does  many  others. 
with  the  utmost  truth  of  feeling,  and   leaves  us  no   reason    to  regret 
the  change.     The  Laura?  of  Madame  Vjss.tb.is  is  as  engaging  as  ever. 
She   was  encored   last   night,  as    she   generally  is,  in   Mr,  Nathan's 
song  of  "  fV7ty  arc  you  wandering."     We  should  have  mentioned  that 
Mr.  Liston  was  likewise  encored  in   his   comic   piece  of  melancholy 
harmony.     The  remaining  characters   were  pleasantly  supported  by 
Messrs.  Melrose,  Vining,  Lee,  Mrs.  Garrick,  and  Mrs.  C.  Jones. 
The  latter  lady  is   a  general  favourite,  nay,  a  mighty  one  with   the 
powers  above.     There  is  such  a  comfortable  look  about  her,  so  much 
of  good  nature,  although  she  can  assume  a  little   of  the    devil   too, 
that  she  is  always  welcome. 

In  the  Farce  of  Two  Strings  to  your  Bow,  which  finished  the 
night's  entertainments,  Madame  Vkstris  appeared  to  great  advantage 
B9  Donna  Clara,  and  was  loudlv  encored  in  Braiiam's  air  of"  Reason 
and  Love.' *  Mr.  Liston,  in  Lazarillo,  was  very  amusing  of  course, 
and. the  wkole  piece  was  agreeably  acted; 


THE  THEATRICAL  OBSERVER. 


In  t>er  Frcischutss,  we  had  again  the  delightful  Miss  Stephens, 
and  the  admirable  Braham,  who  gave  to  the  fine  music  of  Wfber, 
the  very  best  effect.  Mr.  H.  Phillips,  who  fills  the  part  of  Rollo, 
displays  his  fine  bass  voice  in  a  superior  manner. — This  gentleman  is 
rising  rapidly  in  his  profession.  IVliss  Povey,  we  are  happy  to  say, 
is  again  able  to  take  her  character  of  jinn  in  this  Opera,  and  sang 
with  her  accustomed  sweetness  and  taste.  In  The  Reign  of  Twelve 
Jtouri,  Miss  Kelly  ruled  very  engagingly,  and  Mr.  Pearman  sang 
with  pleasing  effect.  Mr.  W.  Chapman  does  the  little  in  Chekdttr 
sufficiently  well. — The  house  was  crowded. 

Vauxhall  Gardens. — There  will  be  a  Spendid  Gala  To-night. 

The  Cobourg  Theatre  was  crowded  to  excess  last  night,  to  witness 
the  performance  of  Jane  Shore,  or,  as  it.  is  called  at  the  Cobourg, 
The  King's  Mistress.  Miss  Macau  ley  played  Alicia  respectably  • 
but  in  her  most  serious  scene  an  nwkard  circumstance  occurred  from 
the  scantiness  of  her  robe.  In  falling  to  the  ground,  this  lady  exposed 
the  greater  part  of  her  stockings  which  are  usually  concealed  by  tra- 
gedy heroines,  and  displayed  by  figurantes.  The  acting  of  Bengough, 
as  Dumont,  was  excellent.

Sir, 

I  beg  leave  to  inform  you  of  a  mistake  which  appeared  in  your 
Paper  of  the  5th.  ulto.  and  which  I  make  no  doubt  you  will  correct, 
with  your  usual  attention  to  the  suggestions  of  your  Correspondents. 

The  gentleman  whose  imitations  (substituted  for  Mr.  J.  Reeve's 
song)  deservedly  met  with  so  much  applause  at  Covent  Garden  Theatre 
on  the  20th  of  July  last,  was  not  Mr.  Rede,  as  erroneously  stated  in 
vour  Paper  above-mentioned,  but  Mr.  Buckingham,  of  the  Surrey 
Theatre. 

I  am,  Sir,  your's,  &c.  H.  C.  S. — A  Constant  Reader.

*'  That  infernal  Page  again  !"  as  we  have  it  in  Figaro:  so  may 
we  diurnal  critics  exclaim  of  the  terrific  Opera  here,  which  being 
everlastingly  presented  to  us,  from  vcrv  lack  of  new  terms  whereby 
to  notice  it,  wc  may  vety  naturally  exclaim,  "That  infernal  Drr 
Freisehutz  again  !" — and  an  infernal  piece  it  is.  What  the  Diable 
can  we  now  say  about  it  !  Why,  nothing  more  than  that  the  JHahle. 
will  have  his  day,  or  rather  his  night  ;  for  he  seems  to  rule  nightly 
at  this  house.  Vet,  we  do  not  mean  to  support  the  puritanical  opi- 
nion that.  "  the  Theatre  is  the  Devil's  own  house  ;"  although  the 
truth  is,  that  many  deeds  of  darkness  are  done  here — vide,  (if  you 
can)  the  extinct  gas-lights — and  still,  the  morality  of  the  stage  is  not 
thereby  impeached.  If  any  of  our  readers  think  this  a  paradox,  let 
them  go  and  see  this  extraordinary  drama,  and,  then,  they  will  find 
it  a  very  palpable  fact,  and  that  "  the  Prince  of  Darkness,"  and  his 
fire-works,  cannot  afieet  our  '  good  works"  But  if  this  were  doubt- 
ful, surely  a  spectator  would  derive  confidence  from  knowing  that 
there  is  more  than  one  Angel  in  the  piece  ;  Miss  Sterh^s,  for  in- 
stance, whose  heavenly  voice  is  enough  to  melt  the  heart  of  the  veriest, 
daemon  that  ever  plagued  mankind.  We  defy  any  person  to  hear  her 
and  not  fee?  that  his  best  feelings  were  gratified.  She  is  as  capable  of 
inspiring  devotion,  as  she  is  of  communicating  the  most  delicate 
sense  of  tender  and  innocent  sentiment.  Whether  she  executes  the 
most  sublime  piece  of  Handel,  or  the  most  playful  air,  bhe  is  still  in 
our  mind's  eye  one  of  those  good  .Angels  who  appear  on  earth  to  ex- 
tend harmony.,  and  give  a  relish  to  us  mortals,  of  the  rational  pleasures 
of  this  life.  The  audience  of  last  night  appeared  fully  sensible  of  her 
charming  powers,  and  acknowledged  their  delight  with  great  ani- 
mation. Mr.  Bkaham  also  shared  in  the  applause  bestowed  so  justly 
on  his  unrivalled  powers.  i-Jis  "  Good  •Vight,"  is  sung  with  the  ut- 
most taste,  feeling,  and  science.  When  to  the  musical  attractions 
are  added  the  singularities  of  this  drama,  it  is  no  wonder  that  snch 
crowds  should  be  present  at  its  performance  every  night.  We  find 
there  are  to  be  but  a  few  more  of  the  combined  performances  of  Miss 
Stephens  and  Mr.  Braham  in  JDcr  Frei* chutz,, on  account  of  their 
provincial  engagements.  Those,  therefore,  who  have  not  seen  the 
piece  with  them  in  it,  should  take  care  not  to  lose  the  opportunity. — 
The  OvertHre  was  again  encored  last  night — it  is  a  very  line  and 
striking  composition.

Madame  Vestris,  and  Miss  Love.  The  entertainments  concluded 
with  the  comic  piece  of  Matrimony ,  which  was  very  pleasantly  acted

Time  is  fast  consuming  the  allotted  period  for  the.  appearance  of 
Miss  Stephens  and  Mr.  Braham,  whom  the  Manager  informs  us, 
"  having,  long  since,  concluded  peremptory  engagements  at  the  Pro- 
vincial Musical  Festivals,  cannot  possibly  extend  their  performances 
in  this  Theatre  beyond  Wednesday,  the  1st  of  September,  after  which 
time  the  celebrated  Der  Freischutx  must  necessarily  be  withdrawn 
fiom  representation/' — The  house,  on  Saturday  night,  was  crowded, 
and  the  applause  great. 


The  first  piece  of  Saturday  night  was,  "  Of  Age  To-morrow," 
which  was  acted  uncommonly  -well  in  every  character,  but  particularly 
so  by  Miss  Love  and  Mr.  Vining.  That  lady  sang  with  veiy  pleasing 
effect  the  Medley  song,  and  that  of  "  JSro,  my  lovs,  no,"'  which  were 
encored.  We  should,  however,  have  first  mentioned,  that  on  entering 
the  Theatre,  we  regretted  to  find,  by  manuscript  placards  on  the  front 
of  the  house,  that  Miss  Paton  had  been  suddenly  and  severely  taken 
ill.,  which  prevented  her  playing  Polly,  in  The  Beggar's  Opera.  No- 
thing was  stated  relative  to  any  substitution  of  piece  or  performer  : 
but  at  the  end  of  the  above  mentioned  Farce,  Mr.  W.  Farren  ap- 
peared, and  addressed  the  audience  to  the  following  effect : — "  Ladies 
and  Gentlemen,  I  appear  before  you  under  rather  unpleasant  circum- 
stances ;  I  am  requested  by  the  Manager  to  make  known  to  you,  that 
Miss  Paton  has  been  taken  suddenly  ill,  of  which  there  was  no  in- 
timation at  the  Theatre  until  five  o'clock  this  day. — (Mr.  Farren  here 
produced  and  read  a  letter  from  Miss  Paton's  Physician)  But  now, 
Ladies  and  Gentlemen,  I  have  the  pleasantest  part  of  my  duty  toper- 
form.  The  Manager  with  that  desire  which  he  has  always  felt  not  on 
any  occasion  to  disappoint  the  public,  has  accepted  the  services  of  a 
young  lady  who  has  never  appeared  on  any  stage,and  who  has  been  for 
some  time  anxious  to  make  a  debut  here.  With  your  kind  permission 
she  will  undertake  the  part  of  Polly  ;  and  coming  forward  as  she 
does  on  this  extraordinary  occasion,  without  even  a  previous  rehear- 
sal, she  places  the  fullest  confidence  in  your  kindness,  in  passing 
over  any  defects."  Loud  applause  followed  this  Address,  and  the 
Opera  then  commenced.  When  Polly  had  to  appear,  Mr.  Farren 
led  on  the  young  lady,  who  appeared  not  more  than  seventeen  or 
eighteen;  and  of  a  pleasing  person.    She  was  welcomed   in   the  most

friendly  manner  by  the  audience,  but  it  was  evident,  throughout,  that 
her  extreme  agitation  considerably  impeded  the  full  effect  ihe  might 
have  given  to  her  songs.  She  was  encored  in  "  But  he  so  teazed  me,** 
and  would,  no  doubt,  have  had  the  same  mark  of  approbation  be- 
stowed on  some  of  her  other  songs,  had  not  the  audience  conceived 
it  was  trying  her  powers  too  severely.  She,  certainly,  has  a  good 
voice  ;  and  as  we  find  we  shall  have  another  opportunity  of  hearing 
her  under  less  embarrassment,  we  shall  not  extend  our  remarks  at 
present.  Madame  Vestris  gave  the  songs  of  Macheath  as  admirably 
as  any  lady  could.  Mr.  Farren  and  Mr.  Lee  were  the  Peachum  and 
Lockit.  The  piece  is  so  curtailed  that  the  latter  has  hardly  any  thing 
to  do.  Mr.  Farren  acted  Peachum  very  well.  Mr.  W.  West  played 
JFilch,  and  received  applause  in  some  instances.  Mrs.  Jones  played 
Lucy  with  great  spirit. — She  frightened  the  new  Polly  in  downright 
earnest.  The  entertainments  concluded  with  the  new  Comedy  of 
Married  and  Single. — The  house  wai  very  full. 

Sadler's  Wells. — By  the  bills  we  perceive  the  Benefit  of  Grimaldi 
is  fixed  for  this  evening,  and  from  the  novelty,  we  have  no  doubt  but 
a  bumper  will  be  the  result,  after  an  absence  from  the  stage  of  more 
than  twelve  months,  occasioned  by  the  most  severe  illness ;  he  intends 
introducing  a  scene  in  which  he  will  exhibit  his  unrivalled  powers,  and 
sing  one  of  his  mnch  admired  comic  songs.  His  son  is  announced 
for  the  Clown  on  this  occasion,  which,  added  to  the  appearance  of 
Grimaldi  himself,  is,  we  think,  a  novelty  that  must  prove  more  than 
usually  attractive.  A  new  melo-drama,of  which  report  speaks  highly, 
is  also  prepared  for  this  evening,  a  translation  from  the  French,  which 
has  lately  created  a  strong  sensation  in  Paris,  where  it  has  been  per* 
formed  upwards  of  two  hundred  successive  nights.  The  splendid  pan- 
tomime, entitled  Harlequin  Faggot  Maker  ,r  or,  the  Magic  Bowl,  is 
among  the  novelties,  in  which  the  celebrated  Pantaloon,  Barnes,  is 
mentioned  to  appear  in  his  original  character,  and  Mr.  J.  S.  Grimaldi, 
as  the  Clown,  which  name  being  coupled  with  Sadler's  Wells,  reminds 
us  of  the  olden,  as  well  as  the  "  golden"  times  of  this  Theatre.

"  Nothing  extenuate  nor  set  down  aught  in  malice." 

No.  853  Tuesday,  Aug.  24    1824.  Price  Id. 

J)er  Frbisckutz  was  yesterday  evening  repeated  to  an  elegant 
and  crowded  auditory.  The  first  act  passed  with  its  usual  eclat,  in 
which  Mr.  Braham  exerted  his  transcendant  talents  with  astonishing 
effect.  At  the  conclusion,  Mr.  Bartley  appeared,  and  his  approach 
seemed  to  announce  him  the  harbinger  of  unpleasant  tidings,  which 
was  confirmed  on  his  addressing  the  audience  to  the  following  effect. 

"  Ladies  and  Gentlemen, — Previous  to  the  appearance  of  Bliss 
Stephens,  to  me  devolves  the  unpleasant  duty  of  announcing  that  at 
this  moment  she  is  suffering  from  a  severe  cold  and  attendant  hoarse- 
ness, and  so  great  is  the  extent  of*  her  indisposition,  that  no  other 
lady,  similarly  circumstanced,  would  venture  to  appear  before  you  ; 
but  such  is  her  anxious  solicitude  and  consciousness  of  duty,  that  she 
has  determined  to  make  the  arduous  attempt  of  performing  the  part 
for  which  she  has  been  announced  this  evening.  I  need  not,  Ladies 
and  Gentlemen,  observe  how  complicated  and  difficult  ate  the  music 
and  part  she  has  to  perform  ;  but  firmly  trust  that  the  flattering  in- 
dulgence with  which  she  has  ever  been  honored,  will  he  extended  to 
her  on  this  occasion." 

This  explanation  and  apology  were  duly  received,  and  on  the  ap- 
pearance of  Miss  Stephens  in  the  opening  of  the  second  act,  she  was 
greeted  with  unanimous  plaudits,  at  which  she  seemed  deeply  affected, 
but  on  th(Sir  subsiding,  recovered  her  composure,  and  though  evidently 
struggling  with  severe  illness,  she  sung  with  great  taste  and  science  ; 
of  course  the  usual  encores  were  not  pressed.  It  would  be  great  in- 
justice not  to  notice  Miss  Povey  ;  she  warbled  delight  fully  ;  and  the 
remaining  characters  were  well  sustained.  Free  and  Easy  followed, 
in  which  Miss  Kelly,  if  possible,  excelled  former  efforts,  in  her  arch 
and  sprightly  delineation  of  Gertrude. 


I^ap^marfect  €lf)catre. 

The  entertainments  here  are  exactly  of  the  description  which  we 
look  for  at  the  "  Little  Theatre."  Now  and  then  some  music,  and 
always  a  good  share  of  humor  and  pleasantry.  We  need  only  refer 
to  the  play-bill  of  this  evening,  which  contains  three  of  the  most 
amusing  pieces,  and  which  we  are  sure  will  be  well  acted.  Mr.  Lis- 
ton,  Mr.  Harley,  Mr.  W.  Farren,  Mr.  Cooper,  Mr.  Vising,  Mr. 
W.  West,  Madame  Vestris,  Miss  Love,  Miss  Chester,  Mrs.  Gibes. 
&c.  have  conspicuous  places. 


Ttt£   THEATRICAL   OBSERVER 


Vauxall. — Last  night  these  Gardens  were  unusually  splendid,  in 
order  to  celebrate  the  Birth-day  of  the  Duke  of  Clarance.  The  even- 
ing being  fine,  the  company  assembled  in  great  numbers.  Various  de- 
vices were  tastefully  hung  along  the  different  walks,  and  flags  of 
Great  Britain  waved  as  triumphantly  as  in  the  proudest  days  of  a 
Howe,  a  St.  Vincent,  or  a  Nelson. 

Davis's  Amphitheatre.—  The  Battle  of  Waterloo,  and  the  Pan- 
tomime of  The  Dragon  of  Wantley,  attracted  a  full  house  last  night. 

Surrey. — The  grand  Chinese  melo-drama  of  The  Burning  Bridge 
was  again  repeated  last  night,  and  was  excellently  acted. 

Sadler's  Wells — We  understand  Mr.  Grimaldi  had  a  bumper. 

#  To  the  Editor  of  The  Theatrical  Observer. 

Mr.  Editor, 

I  am  but  a  poor  fellow,  in  short  a  complete  Sylvester  the 
Second,  and  rightful  heir  to  the  throne  of  all  the  Daggerwoods ;  and, 
therefore,  I  deem  myself  compelled  to  inform  the  world,  through  the 
medium  of  your  useful  Publication,  of  the  grievances  I  sustain  thro* 
the  performance  of  that  infernal  piece  of  music  at  the  English  Opera, 
entitled  "  Der  Freischutz,"  which  has  put  an  end  to  many  free  looks- 
in  at  the  E.  O.  II.  I  have  been  out  of  an  engagement  these  two  years, 
owing  to  the  blowing-up  of  our  barn  at  a  little  town,  about  two  hun- 
dred miles  from  London,  one  night,  occasioned  by  a  barrel  of  gun- 
powder, of  which  we  cheated  a  smuggler,  in  order  to  add  Metropolitan 
effect  to  the  last  scene  of  a  melo-drama.  We  lost  our  all,  besides 
three  donkies,whose  capers  whilst  ascending  to  the  airy  regions  seemed 
to  emulate  the  movements  of  the  more  noble  quadrupeds,  who  have 
danced  nightly  on  the  classic  boards  of  our  winter  theatres.  Alas  ! 
I  have  ever  since  felt  pinching  hunger  knawing  my  better  parts  in  a 
most  insatiate  manner  ;  and  *vere  it  not  for  some  of  my  brethren,  who 
bestow  their  bones  upon  me,  by  this  time  I  should  not  have  a  bone  to 
pick.  Often  an  order  has  ordered  me  a  dinner :  but  now,  I  look  with 
despairing  eyes,  and  feel  as  if  tottering  on  the  rock  of  disappoint- 
ment, without  a  friendly  peake  to  offer  me  assistance.  The  German 
carries  the  day,  and  my  English  bosom  sighs  for  a  mutton  chop  ! 
Mr.  Editor,  inform  me  when  you  think  orders  will  -go,  and  you  will 
oblige  Your's,

There  was  an  excellent  house  here  last  night,  and  how  could  it  be 
otherwise,  when  the  charming  Miss  Stephens,  and  the  inimitable 
Braham  unite  their  vocal  talents  in  executing  the  fine  music  of 
Weber.  The  Overture  alone  is  a  treat  to  the  lovers  of  music. — A 
few  more  nights,  and  they  are  gone  !  A  new  Afterpiece  is  in  prepar- 
ation. 

l^a^nmvhtt  <3Tf)ratre. 

As  we  expected,  the  three  pieces  of  last  night  were  acted  in  tha 
most  excellent  manner,  and  gave  the  highest  delight  to  a  very  nu- 
merous audience.  The  first,  The  Young  Quaker,  is  a  Comedy  well 
suited  to  this  Theatre,  being  light  and  dashed  with  a  little  sentiment. 
It  is  a  drama  that  requires  good  acting  to  keep  up  its  very  existence, 
for  in  bad  hands  it  would  be  stupid  enough.  Every  character  was 
well  filled,  last  night,  and,  therefore,  we  never  saw  it  more  effective. 
Mr.  Vjning,  as  Young  Sadboy,  looks  and  represents  the  gay  Quaker 
as  well  as  could  be  desired.  Captain  Ambush  was  not  badly  done  by 
Mr.  Johnson  :  but  high  Comedy  parts  were  in  the  keeping  of  Messrs. 
Harlev  and  Liston.  The  Spatterdash  of  the  former  is  a  very  amus- 
ing performance,  and  he  received  great  applause  in  giving  the  token, 
and  in  the  drunken-scene  where  he  bears  off  old  Chronicle  from  the 
party,  to  save  him  from  getting  more  forward.  Mr.  Liston,  in  Clod, 
whenever  he  appeared,  set  the  audience  grinning,  and  his  exits  with 
his  droll  look  and  "  the  White  Lion  '"  convulsed  every  one  with 
laughter.  Miss  Love  played  Araminta  very  like  a  sprightly  young 
lady  who  would  have  the  man  of  her  choice  whether  mamma  liked  it 
or  not ;  and  she  sang  the  air  of  "  //  was  a  lover  and  Ids  lass/*  and 
also  "  Gramchree,"  very  delightfully,  and  was  much  applauded. — 
Miss  Chester  made  a  most  interesting  Dinah  Primrose,  and  her  dis- 
tress drew  a  tear  from  many. 

The  next  piece  was  the  one-act  Farce  of  Intrigue,  on  which  oc- 
casion Mr.  Barley  and  Mr.  Cooper,  appeared  for  the  first  time,  as 
Tom  and  Varnish.  The  former  gentleman  kept  up  the  character  of 
the  jealous,  timid  husband,  with  the  greatest  humor  and  effect,  and 
Mr.  Cooper  made  the  hypocritical  rake  very  conspicuous.  The  act- 
ing of  Mr.  Vining,  as  Captain  Ramblcton,  was  effective.  The  charm- 
ing Madame  Vestris  played  Ellen  very  delightfully,  and  sang  in  her

accustomed  rich  and  sweet  style  :  but  the  duet  with  Mr.  Harley,  of 
"  When  a  little  Farm  we  keep,"  was  given  in  such  humor  and  spirit, 
that  a  thundering  encore  was  the  inevitable  consequence.  Altogether 
Intrigue  went  off  most  pleasantly.  That  capital  Farce  of  Colman's, 
X,  Y,  Z,  was  the  concluding  entertainment,  and  all  we  shall  say  is, 
that  whoever  has  not  seen  Mr.  Ltston  play  Neddy  Bray,  can  have  no 
idea  of  the  comicality  of  the  performance.  Mr.  Harley  represented 
Mr.  Manager  Alldross  with  all  his  customary  humor,  and  the  piece 
in  its  other  parts  was  well  supported.  Mr.  W.  West,  certainly,  in 
Ralph  Hempseed,  does  not  look  rascal  enough,  but  he  shewed  he  well 
■understood  the  character.  The  amusements  of  this  night  were  so 
highly  entertaining  from  beginning  to  end,  that  the  audience  had  hardly 
time  to  recover  for  a  moment  from  loud  laughter.  In  truth,  we  never 
were  more  gratified,  and  we,  therefore,  for  the  sake  of  others  who 
were  not  present,  do  intreat  the  Manager  to  favour  us  with  a  repe- 
tition of  these  three  pieces,  and  he  may  rely  on  it  he  will  have  another 
crowded  house. 

The  Surrey  Theatre  was  very  well  attended  last  night.

Edinburgh  Theatre. — On  Thursday  night  Miss  Tree  had  her  be- 
nefit, when  the  Opera  of  Native  Land,  with  the  entertainment  of 
Clari,  were  performed.  The  house  overflowed  in  every  part,  and  Miss 
Tree  performed  and  sang  with  exquisite  feeling  and  effect.  She  was 
encored  in  the  favorite  air  of lt  My  heart  is  sair  for  somebody*'  "  Rest 
Warrior,  Rest,"  which  was  given  in  her  finest  style,  and  several 
other  airs.  Mr.  Sinclair  and  Miss.  Hallande  lent  their  effective  aid, 
and  the  whole  went  off  with  great  eclat.  Miss  Hallande  also  had  an 
excellent  house  last  night,  and  was  encored  in  two  of  her  songs. —

On  Wednesday  last,  during  the  last  act  of  Macbeth,  in  the  Cork 
Theatre,  an  accident  occurred,  which  for  a  moment  excited  very  ge- 
neral alarm  iu  the  house.  Mrs.  Daly,  who  performed  Lady  Macbeth, 
in  the  scene  with  the  Physician,  unfortunately  came  near  a  candle 
which  was  placed  upon  a  tabic  at  the  left  side  of  the  stage,  when  the 
flame  caught  the  light  drapery  which  she  wore,  and  in  a  moment  it 
appeared  in  a  blaze.  Some  gentlemen  leaped  from  the  boxes  on  the 
stage,  and  the  performers  who  were  on  the  boards  ran  to  her  assis- 
tance ;  but  before  they  had  reached  her  Mrs.  Daly  contrived  to  ex- 
tinguish the  flames,  without  having  sustained  any  injury. — The  Play 
then  proceeded  without  interruption.  Mr.  Macready  was  the  Mac- 
beth.

**  Nothing  extenuate  nor  set  down  aughl  in  malice." 

No.  855  Thursday,  dug.  26,   IS24.  Price  Id, 

J^ap>niarfeet  ^Tijcatre- 

To  set  out  with  The  Blue  Devils,  is  generally  considered  no  good 
token  of  the  happiness  of  your  establishment — this  may  bo  true,  as 
to  our  own  proper  homes,  but  it  is  otherwise  here.  At  this  house  The 
Blue  Devils  usually  inspires  mirth,  and  forms  one  of  the  symptoms 
of  good  management.  Last  night  this  was  the  case,  for  The  Blue 
Devils  eked  out  the  entertainment  of  the  visitors  of  this  meriy  "  Lit- 
tle Theatre,"  and  did  not  diminish  the  pleasure  felt  in  the  company 
of  Sweethearts  and  Wives,  or  Married  and  Single. 

Some  may  think  the  writing  of  this  little  periodical  a  very  ea*? 
matter  ;  and  so  it  is  as  to  quantity  of  matter;  but  the  difficulty  lie$ 
in  being  placed  in  such  a  situation  as  we  now  are,  that  is,  the  being 
compelled  to  speak  of  a  Piece  for  the  30th  time,  and  thus  being  ut- 
terly worn  tbread-bare  in  oar  expressions  upon  it.  Der  Freischutz 
on  our  Paper,  is  enough  to  frighten  our  gentle  readers  into  au  utter 
abhorrence  of  us.  We  cannot  help  it:  we  must  do  our  duty  as  faith- 
ful recorders  of  the  theatrical  proceedings  of  the  previous  evening. — - 
We,  therefore,  proclaim  it  again,  that  Der  Freischutz  was  last  night 
honored  by  the  attendance  of  a  crowd  of  the  curious,  who  evinced 
the  usual  quantum  of  surprise  derived  from  the  horrors  of  the  Wolf's 
Glen,  and  of  pleasure  from  the  sweet  watbling  of  the  Stephens  and 
the  Povey  ;  and  the  brilliant  strains  of  the  wonderful  Braham.  We 
strongly  recommend  those  who  have  ears,  (we  will  excuse  all  of  as- 
sinine  length)  to  go  and  hear  Weber's  striking  composition  in  this 
piece.  The  overture,  chorusses,  and  several  of  the  songs,  are  finely 
adapted  to  the  subject  of  the  drama,  which  we  conceive  the  best 
proof  of  the  genius  of  the  composer.  Any  stringer  oi  crotchets  may 
put  together  a  fair  modicum  of  harmony,  but  to  convey  with  true  effect 
the  sentiment  or  the  business  of  the  passing  scene,  by  the  strains  of 
music,  is  only  within  the  ability  of  a  composer  of  genuine  talent. 

Royal  Amphitheatre. —  The  Battle  of  Waterloo. — Last  night, 
the  111 th  consecutive  representation  of  that  remarkable  event  at- 
tracted an  audience  as  numerous  as  usual,  who  appeared  highly  de- 
lighted with  the  roar  of  the  deep-mouthed  artillery,  and  "  allthe 
pride,  pomp,  aud  circumstance  of  glorious  war."     Ducrow  is  a  most

powerful  auxiliary  to  the  allied  forces  in  this  mimic  scene  of  terror  and 
triumph.  He  sets  at  defiance  the  Newtonian  system  of  gravity,  and 
seems  to  hover  over,  rather  than  rest  upon  the  noble  animal  that 
bears  him.  His  pantomimic  scenes  are  perfect,  and  impart,  if  we  may 
here  use  the  word,  intellectual  entertainment. 

Surrey. — This  house,  last  night,  was  well  filled  in  the  course  of 
the  evening,  to  see  The  Burning  Bridge,  and  JFaverley.  In  the 
former  piece  the  acting  of  Mr.  H.  Kemble,  as  the  supposed  Tartar 
maniac,  was  excellent.  Mrs.  Loveday  performed  Celinda  with  her 
accustomed  ability,  and  received  much  applause.  The  Comic  Dance 
by  Messrs.  Flex:>iore,  Jonas,  and  Honor,  was  encored.  The  Ro- 
mance of  JFaverley  followed  :  the  acting  was  excellent,  particularly 
by  Mr.  H.  Kemble,  Mr.  Loveday,  Mrs.  Sheppard,  &c. — The  duet 
between  Messrs.  Wyatt  and  Harwooi>  was  loudly  encored. 

Sadler's  Wells. — The  new  piece,  entitled  The  Fatal  Island ;  and 
the  Hour  of  Four ,  was  repeated  last  night,  to  a  very  good  house  ; 
after  which,  the  Interlude  of  Disguises  was  well  performed  by  Mr. 
Lancaster,  and  Miss  Vincent,  the  latter  sustaining  with  great  spirit, 
six  different  characters.  The  Pantomime  of  Harlequin  Faggot  Jlfa- 
her  followed  and  created  much  amusement. 

The  West  London  Theatre  is  now  open  for  the  Season  under  the 
Management  of  Mr.  W.  R.  Beverley. 

The  Late  John  Kemble. — A  Letter  appeared  in  the  John  Bull,  of 
last  Sunday,  which  contained  arguments  against  the  propriety  of  ad- 
mitting the  proposed  monument  to  that  eminent  man,  the  late  Mr. 
Kemble,  into  Westminster  Abbey.  The  letter-writer  acknowledged 
that  he  was  but  little  acquainted  with  theatres  or  actors,  yet  he  as- 
sumes a  power  of  judging  which  demanded  an  intimate  knowledge  of 
the  history  of  the  stage.  This  person  would  admit  to  the  sacred 
fane  the  record  of  the  poet's  genius,  but  would  deny  it  to  him  whose 
o-enius  gave  living  delineations,  that  partook  equally  of  the  sublime 
and  beautiful.  Mr.  Kemble  above  all  others  of  his  profession,  best 
merited  the  honor  intended  to  his  memory.  He  was  an  admirable  tra- 
gedian, and  the  creator  of  a  classic  stage  ;  and  to  him  are  we  chiefly 
indebted  for  a  full  and  impressive  relish  of  the  finest  of  the  immortal 
Shakspf.are's  Plays.  In  this  point  of  view,  (\i  not  as  an  embodier 
of  the  passions)  he  has  a  higher  claim  to  a  public  monument  amongst 
the  illustrious  dead,  than  even  Garrick,  whose  monument,  the  letter- 
writer  asserts,  might  merit  a  place  in  Westminster  Abbey,  because  he 
was  a  poet.  But  surely  Garrick  would  never  have  been  thus  distin- 
guished for  his  writings.  It  was  as  a  tragedian  alone  that  he  had  the 
sculptured  honors  bestowed  on  him,  whilst  Kemble  has  a  claim  on 
public  feeling  both  as  a  most  distirguished  tragedian,  and  ono  who 
rendered  the  British  Stage  truly  honorable  to  the  taste  of  his  country.

One  of  the  most  crowded  and  genteel  audiences  of  the  season  graced 
this  Theatre  last  night.  The  pieces  which  formed  the  attraction  of 
the  evening,  were  Of  jfge  To-morrow,  Tha  Hypocrite,  and  Love, 
Law,  and  Physic :  and  before  we  say  anything  of  these  perform- 
ances, we  shall  just  remark,  that  the  combination  of  amusing  pieces, 
here  proves  the  Manager  to  understand  thoroughly  how  to  cater  for 
the  public  entertainment ;  and  we  would  press  it  upon  the  notice  of 
the  managers  of  our  great  winter  theatres,  that  the  offering  a  short 
Farce  for  the  opening,  affords  a  great  convenience  to  the  fashionable 
world,  who  can  thus  have  the  opportunity  of  coining  into  the  house 
at  about  eight  o'clock,  in  time  to  see  the  chief  piece  of  the  night  entire. 
We  assert,  that  this  arrangement  would  prove  of  immense  advantage 
to  the  winter  houses,  and  we  hope  for  their  own  interests,  the  mana- 
gers will  take  it  into  serious  consideration. 

The  Farce  Of  Age  'To-morrow  was  most  pleasantly  performed. — • 
Mr.  Vising,  as  Frederick,  exerted  himself  with  very  amusing  effect. 
We  think  highly  of  this  gentleman,  and  should  be  happy  to  see  him 
on  our  winter  hoards.  It  is  not  easy  to  say  what  line  of  performance 
ho  would  invade,  because  he  has  very  general  talents,  but  we  will  say 
that  in  the  line  of  utility  he  would  always  prove  valuable.  We  know 
nothing  of  Mr.  Vining  but  as  a  performer  here — we  never  in  any  shape 
came  in  contact  with  him — but  we  say  it  from  our  own  impressions, 
that  he  is  calculated  to  be  a  popular  performer  on  our  gieat  metro- 
politan stage.  Miss  Love,  as  Maria,  sang  very  delightfully,  and 
the  other  characters  were  well  supported  by  Mr.  Williams',  Mr.  Wil- 
kinson, (wlro  made  Jllolkus  very  comic)  Miss  J.  Scott,  (who  is  a  very 
lovely  young  lady)  and  the  pains-taking  Mrs.  Kendall,  who  repre- 
sented Lady  Brumback  instead  of  Mrs.  Windsor.  We  now  come  to 
The  Hypocrite ,  and  although  we  adhere  to  our  often  expressed  opi- 
nion, that  this  Play  does  serious  injury  to  the  cause  of  religion ,  by 
fostering  prejudice  against  its  ministers,  because  there  is  no  distin- 
guishing in  vulgar  conception,  between  real  and  assumed  sanctity  of 
manner,  still  we  must  acknowledge  that  the  unthinking  and  the  half- 
thinking  multitude  are  powerfully  attracted  by  this  piece,  and,  there- 
fore, that  managers,  in  their  necessity,  cannot  resist  the  temptation 
of  offering  it  for  representation.  On  the  present  occasion  the  novelty 
was  Mr.  W.  Farren's  undertaking  the  character  of  Doctor  Cantwell. 
We  will  cut  the  matter  criticism  on  his  attempt  very  short — nature- 
has  forbid  him — he  has  not  power  of  expression  requisite  for  the  part. 


THE   THEATRICAL   OBSERVER , 


Cantw ell's  villanies  have  to  be  indexed  or  suppressed  at  pleasure  on 
Ids  countenance  :  now  Mr.  Fjlrren's  features  admit  of  no  such  ex- 
emplification of  mind.  He  has  a  regular  set  of  expressions  for  every 
character,  and  although  his  understanding  is  excellent,  he  wants  the 
physical  power  necessary  to  any  character  that  depends  on  varied  im- 
pulses exhibited  by  the  features.  This  defect  of  nature  necessarily 
confines  Mr.  Farrem  to  characters  of  habit,  rather  than  of  intellect ; 
and  he  in  vain  strives  to  rise  bcvond  the  former.  Dowton  makes 
points  by  a  look,  and  so,  in  some  degree  docs  Terry,  but  Farren 
is  absolutely  cut  off  from  such  means  of  success.  Mr.  Farren,  it 
must  be  acknowledged,  is  a  man  of  considerable  professional  talent, 
but  he  should  be  very  careful  to  assume  no  character  in  which  hie  pe- 
culiar manner,  his  features,  and  his  voice  are  not  likely  ta  prove 
effective.  One  of  the  most  admirably  performed  characters  of  Mrs. 
CiiatterleY's,  is  her  Charlotte  in  this  Play  :  she  merited  and  received 
the  greatest  applause.  In  fact,  with  respect  to  the  other  characters, 
the  whole  Comedy  was  excellently  acted ;  but  we  should  state  that  the 
part  of  the  Old  Lady  Lambert  was,  as  to  the  last  four  acts,  sustained 
by  Mrs.  Kendall.  Mrs.  Windsor  had  appeared  in  that  character  in 
the  first  act,  but  evidently  labouring  under  severe  indisposition.  At 
the  end  of  that  act,  Mr.  Cooper  came  forward  and  stated  Mrs. 
Windsor's  illness,  and  requested  leave  for  Mrs.  Kendall  to  read  the 
part,  which  was,  of  course,  readily  acceeded  to  by  the  audience. — 
The  Play  went  off  extremely  well.  In  the  last  piece,  Love,  Law,  and 
Physic,  Mr.  Harley  was  exceedingly  entertaining  as  Flexible,  and 
Mr.  Liston  most  amusing  as  Lubin  Log. 


It  is  really  unnecessary  for  us  to  say  a  word  about  the  present  per- 
formances here.  Dcr  Freisehutz  has  gained  such  favor  that  it  is 
nightly  attended  by  crowds;  and  the  afterpieces  are  always  of  a  na- 
ture to  entertain,  particularly  if  the  inimitable  Miss  Kelly  has  a  part 
in  them.  At  the  end  of  the  second  act  of  Der  Freisehutz,  Mr, 
Bartley  appeared  and  stated  that  Miss  Stephens,  who  had  been 
labouring  under  severe  indisposition,  was  unable  to  proceed  with  her 
character,  and  that  trusting  to  such  circumstances,  they  would  be 
under  the  necessity  of  concluding  the  piece  without  her  unrivalled  aid. 

An  Attempt  to  set  Fire  to  the  Exeter  Tiievtre. — During  the  tempo- 
rary absence  of  the  checque-taker,  just  at  the  commencement  of  the  Farce,  some 
malicious  person  put  a  lighted  paper  into  a  lamp  in  the  passage  leading  to  the 
pit,  which  setting  lire  to  the  cotton,  produced  a  high  flame  and  a  great  deal  of 
smoke,  which  the  current  of  air  through  the  passage  naturally  conveyed  into 
the  pit  ;  this  attempt  having  been  accompanied  by  the  cry  of  '*  Fire  .'"  the 
confusion  which  took  place  may  be  easily  conceived. — Ladies  were  shrieking 
and  fainting  in  various  directions,  and  in  an  instant  the  most  timid  of  the  au- 
dience found  themselves  in  safety  on  the  outside  of  the  Theatre,  but  those  who 
remained  were  soon  satisfied  by  the  exertions  of  Mr.  Harvey,  the  Stage-ma- 
nager, of  their  security.  "  God  save  the  Ring,"  was  then  played,  and  the  per- 
formance proceeded.

AS 


Another  brilliant  audience  honored  this  Theatre,  to  hear  Weber's 
music  executed  by  the  delightful  Miss  Stephens,  and  the  admirable 
Braham.  If'  we  were  to  write  as  ponderous  volumes  as  ever  came 
from  a  Geiman  pen,  we  could  not  enlarge  with  the  least  effect,  upon 
the  observations  we  have  already  made  on  this  drama.  So,  we  shall 
only  again  say  to  the  lovers  of  music  who  have  not  yet  heard  that 
which  is  introduced  into  this  piece — "  go,  and  you  will  assuredly  be 
gratified."  

i^aj^niarftet  €f)cati:e* 

Miss  Paton,  it  would  appear,  is  either  unable  to  perform  here  at 
present,  or  has  entered  into  some  other  professional  arrangements. — 
We  should  much  regret  if  it  turns  out  that  she  is  induced  by  any  mis- 
understanding to  give  up  her  engagement  here.  However  it  may  be, 
The  Beggar's  Opera  was  performed  here  last  night,  and  the  character 
of  Polly  not  represented  by  her,  but  was  supported  by  "  the  Young 
Lady,"  whom  we  stated  the  other  day,  had  come  forward  so  suddenly 
to  supply  Miss  Paton's  absence.  On  that  occasion  she  acquitted  her- 
self with  so  much  effect,  that  very  general  and  deserved  praise  was 
bestowed  on  her  efforts.  This  young  lady,  we  understand,  is  a  Miss 
Holmes;  and  the  public  will,  therefore,  have  an  opportunity  of  dis- 
tinguishing her  hereafter.  Her  second  attempt  of  last  night,  was 
highly  creditable ;  but  her  station  as  a  vocalist  must  not  yet  be  deemed 
to  be  in  the  first  rank. — She  is  young,  and  has  much  to  acquire.  The 
audience  gave  her  every  proper  encouragement,  and  she  is  so  pleasing 
a  singer  that  she  cannot  but  be  favorably  received  at  all  times,  in  the 
execution  of  music  which  she  may  have  previously  well  studied.  She 
was  encored  in  "  But  he  so  teazed  me,"  and  "  Cease  your  funning'? 

Madame  Vestris  played  JWacheath  :  she  is  so  charming  in  her  pro- 
per sphere  of  feminine  character,  that  we  are  quite  out  of  temper  to 
see  her  assume  the  dress  and  swagger  of  the  masculine  -gender.  A 
pretty  face  is  certainly  a  pretty  face,  whether  under  a  cap  or  a  hat, 
but  our  associations  of  ideas  preclude  the  possibility  of  admiring  a 
lovely  woman,  transfigured  and  disfigured  by  the  moital  coil  of  broad 
cloth,  which  envelopes  the  frame  of  us  male  monsters.  Speaking  of 
this  lady,  we  may,  without  any  painful  reference  to  her  biography,  say 
this  much  ;  that  there  is  in  her  customary  demeanour  a  sweetness  of 
manner,  and  in  her  conduct  a  thorough  spirit  of  good  nature,  that 
wakes  her  friends  with  those,  who,  under  more  rigid  feelings,  might 


THE   THEATRICAL   OBSERVER. 


be  disinclined  to  meet  on  equal  terms.  She  was  encored  in  u  The 
heart  of  a  man;'  and  '*  How  hapyy  coi4d  I  be  with  either."  As  to 
the  other  characters  of  this  cut-down  Opera,  they  were  respectably 
filled,  but  we  do  not  desire  to  dwell  on  operatical  pieces  presented 
here,  for  we  consider  this  is  not  their  proper  place.  This  Theatre, 
which  is  but  a  foot  from  its  old  scite,  where  every  species  of  humor 
existed  within  the  compass  of  a  Foote,  should  continue  chiefly  de- 
voted to  the  same  species  of  amusements,  nor  think  it  necessary  to 
its  interests  to  trench  upon  the  province  of  the  English  Opera.  Two 
small  Theatres,  which  have  distinct  objects,  cannot  in  this  vast  me- 
tropolis be  considered  as  rivals.  They  have  their  several  supporters, 
and  find  them  in  the  same  classes  who  will  not  be  deterred  from  visit" 
ing  the  performances  of  one  house  because  they  have  seen  those  of 
the  other. 

The  entertainments  concluded  with  the  last  new  Comedy  of  Married 
and  Single,  in  which  Mr.  Farren  was  very  amusing. 

We  understand  that  Mi?s  Paton  has  recovered  from  her  indispo- 
sition, and  that  she  is  at  present  in  treaty  with  Mr.  Arnold,  to  suc- 
ceed Miss  Stephens  in  Der  Preischulz,  on  that  lady's  departure 
from  the  English  Opera-House. 

Mr.  C.  Kemble,  it  is  said,  has  gone  to  Germany,  for  the  purpose 
of  engaging  Weber  to  superintend  the  musical  department  of  Covent 
Garden  Theatre.  Der  Freischutz  is  to  be  the  first  novcltv  produced 
at  both  the  great  houses  ;  and  we  are  happy  to  learn  the  differences 
so  long  pending  have  been  amicably  settled,  and  the  old  agreement  ©f 
not  engaging  the  performers  belonging  to  the  rival  theatres  have  been 
established. 

Shocking  Accident.— On  Thursday  night  last,  during  the  performances  at 
the  Suney  Theatre,  the  audience  was  thrown  into  the  most  sensitive  alarm,  by 
an  accident  which  took  place  on  the  stage,  and  which  was  likely  to  have  ended 
fatally  in  its  consequences.  At  the  conclusion  cf  the  piece  entitled  The  Burn- 
ing Bridge,  a  Spectre  (performed  by  Mr.  Leslie)  has  to  make  its  appearance 
to  Konang,  (Rowbotham)  surrounded  by  clouds,  while  seated  in  a  car.  In 
descending  from  the  top  of  the  stage,  by  some  accident  the  machinery  came  in 
contact  with  some  of  the  burning  materials,  and  the  trappings  with  which  the 
young  gentleman  was  surrounded  caught  fire,  and,  in  a  short  period  he  was  en- 
veloped in  flames,  and  in  that  awful  situation  he  remained  for  some  time,  the 
car  being  too  elevated  for  him  to  leap  out,  and  he  seemed  not  to  be  aware  of 
the  danger  that  threatened  him  until  the  car  was  about  eighteen  feet  from  the 
floor  of  the  stage.  The  audience,  on  viewing  the  dreadful  dilemma  in  which 
he  was  placed,  expressed  a  feeling  of  horror,  and  several  ladies  fainted.  The 
flames  at  length  became  so  powerful,  that  Mr.  Leslie  leaped  from  the  car  to  the 
stage,  and  fell  with  considerable  violence,  in  conseqnence  of  which  he  was 
dreadfully  injured  about  the.  legs,  &c  The  curtain  immediately  dropped,  and 
the  unfortunate  young  gentleman  was  carried  into  the  rGreen  Room,  and  a  sur- 
geon instantly  procured.  It  was  afterwards  announced  to  the  audience  that  he 
was  not  dangerously  hurt,  which  seemed  to  appease  their  fears,  as  he  was  «on- 
sidered  to  be  severely  injured.  He  was  conveyed  home,  and  we  understand 
that  he  is  doing  very  well  at  present. — British  Press.

ijap^marhct  3Tljcatre. 

Ox  Saturday  evening  there  were  three  popular  pieces  performed 
here,  which  drew  an  excellent  house  in  all  parts.  The  amusements 
commenced  with  Sweethearts  and  Wines,  whieh  Opera  is  now  an  es- 
tablished favorite  with  the  public,  owing  to  the  able  manner  in  which 
the  principal  characters  are  supported.  On  Mr.  Liston*  appearing, 
as  Billy  Lackaday,  he  was  greeted  from  all  parts  of  the  house  by 
clapping  of  hands.  His  sorrows  and  neglected  love  were  heartily 
laughed  at,  and  his  lamentable  song  loudly  encored.  Mr.  W.  Farren, 
as  the  old,  amorous,  and  warm-hearted  Jidmiral,  was  very  correct  in 
his  scenes  with  Eugenia.  Mr.  Vixing  looked  and  acted  the  young 
Naval  Officer  with  considerable  spirit.  Mr.  Melrose  sang  the  songs 
allotted  to  him  with  his  usual  judgment,  and  got  some  applause.  Mi. 
Lee  performed  the  part  of  Curtis  highly  respectable.  Madame  Ves- 
trls,  as  usual,  was  loudly  encored  in  her  song  of"  Why  are  you 
wandering."  Miss  Chester's  Eugenia  was  an  excellent  performance, 
particularly  in  the  concluding  scene,  where  she  discovers  herself  to 
her  father-in-law,  Admiral  Franklyn,  Mrs.  G.  Jones  and  Mr?.  Gar- 
rick  done  great  justice  to  Mrs.  Bell  and  Susan. 

The  pleasant  little  one-act  Farce,  entitled  Intrigue,  followed.  Mr. 
H.arley's  Tom  was  spirited  and  amusing.  Mr.  Vixixg  bustled  with 
sufficient  flippancy  through  Captain  Rambleton,  and  Mr.  Coor-ER  prosed 
characteristically  enough  through  the  moralising  libertinism  of  Varnish. 
But  the  chief  attraction  was  Madame  Vestris,  as  Elian.- — This  de- 
lightful actress  performed  this  little  part  with  her  accustomed  gaiety  ; 
it  was  sprightly,  arch,  and  fascinating.  To  enliven  the  performance 
still  more,  Madame  Vestris  introduced  the  song,  "  In  merry  Carlisle 
was  a  lady  fair"  in  which  she  was  highly  applauded  ;  and,  together 
with  Harley,  the  pretty  and  very  laughable  duet,  "  When  a  little 
Farm  we  keep,"  which  was  loudly  and  deservedly  encored.  * 

X,  Y,  Z,  concluded  the  evening's  entertainment,  in  which  Lis- 
ton's  JVcddy  Bray,  and  Harley's  Roscius  Alldross,  were  irresistibly 
laughable.  Mr.  W.  West  was  also  excellent  in  Ralph  Hempseed.-^- 
Mrs.  Mouser,  by  Miss  Boyce,  and  the  Dora  Mumwcll  of  Mrs.  C, 
Jones,  gave  great  satisfaction.

On  Saturday  evening  we   were  again   delightfully  entertained   with 
Der  Freischutz,  the  chef  'Tccuvrc  of  Vox  Weber,  who  may  now 


THE   THEATRICAL   OBSERVER 


not  inaptly,  be  denominated  the  modern  Mozart  of  Germany.  The 
Overture  alone  of  this  extraordinary  composition,  would  establish  its 
author  a  man  of  co-equal  talent  with  the  great  musician  alluded  to  : 
for,  whether  it  be  regarded  for  its  terrific  sublimity  of  grandeur  ;  or, 
its  enchanting  sweetness  and  harmonious  effect,  it  must  always  prove 
equally  acceptable  to  the  man  of  science  and  the  amateur  of  taste. — 
Mr.  Braham  and  Miss  Stephens,  as  usual,  went  through  those  parts 
of  the  music  allotted  to  them,  with  that  precision  and  judgment  which 
ever  characterizes  those  eminent  performers.  Mr.  B.  absolutely  sets 
time  at  defiance,  and  accordingly  sang  with  the  same  energy  and  effect 
that  we  have  witnessed  twenty  years  ago.  Miss  Stephens  cannot 
fail  to  enrapture  even  the  most  fastidious  ;  and  the  little  arch  Miss 
Povey  warbled  with  corresponding  sweetness.  Upon  the  whole,  we 
never  saw  Der  Frcischutz  better  represented.  At  the  termination  of 
the  Opera,  Mr.  Hartley  came,  forward  to  announce  that  a  German 
gentleman,  who  originally  performed  the  part  of  Casper,  would  mnke 
his  first  appearance  in  London  this  evening,  for  Mr.  Braham's  Benefit, 
and  on  which  occasion  would  resume  his  former  character.  Immense 
cheering  followed  this  annunciation,  but  we  were  at  a  loss  to  guess 
at  the  exact  cause,  for  no  one  could  perform  Casper  better  than  Mr. 
Bennett  who  filled  the  character  on  Saturday  night. 

Mr.  Augustus  Beral,  a  native  of  Germany,  who  was  one  of  the 
original  performers  in  Der  Freischutz,  at  Dresden,  Konigsberg,  and 
Breslau,  for  upwards  of  100  nights,  plays  the  part  of  Casper  this 
evening,  for  Mr.  Braham's  Benefit.  This  gentleman  has  only  been 
three  months  in  this  country,  so  cannot  be  supposed  to  be  quite  per- 
fect in  the  pronunciation  of  our  language,  but  he  is  said  to  possess  a 
fine  bass  voice,  and  to  sing  the  music  in  a  very  effective  style. 

Mr.  Mathews  certainly  appears  on  Friday. — A  new  Musical  Farce 
has  been  written  for  him;  it  is  understood  to  be  another  good  humoured 
hit  at  the  Americans,  and  is  the  production  of  a  well-known  pen.  On 
the  same  evening  also,  the  new  Opera  already  announced  under  the 
title  of  The  Frozen  Lake,  will  be  brought  forward. — This  is  spirited 
management  indeed.  ___^_ 

Vauxhall. — This  evening  a  Grand  Gala,  being  the  last  night  but 
two  of  the  season. 

Surrey — The  performances  are  The  Burning  Bridge,  with  Mr. 
Flemmington's  Ventriloquism,  and    Almazaidc  :  or,  the  Fortress  of

twelve  nights  at  the  Bristol  Theatre.  We  understand  Harlequin  and 
the  Flying  Chest  is  getting  tip  with  great  splendour  for  their  debut.

^apmiatbct  aTSjeatxe. 

The  performance  here  last  night,  conferred  great  delight  on  a  Hu- 
morous and  genteel  audience.  The  pieces  represented  were  Love, 
Law,  and  Phytic,  The  Hypocrite,  and  Of  Age  To-morrow.  We 
have  already  spoken  of  the  Comedy,  as  being  ably  performed,  par- 
ticularly by  Mrs,  Ciiatterley,  Mr.  W.  Farrgx,  and  Mr.  Liston.— 
The  other  pieces  were  as  pleasantly  acted  as  could  be  wished.  Mr, 
Liston  and  Mi.  Karley  in  the  first  named  Farce  were  highly  comic. 


We  were  not  present  last  night  at  Mr.  Braham'?  Benefit,  for  the 
best  reason  in  the  world  ;  indeed,  exactly  such  a  reason  as  Ma*.  Bra- 
ham  would  himself  urge,  namely,  that  we  were  too  fond  of  our  money. 
We  make  a  rule,  and  a  wise  one  we  think  it,  never  to  enter  a  theatre 
at  our  own  cost ;  let  it  not  be  supposed  that  we  deem  theatrical  en- 
tertainments unworthy  of  their  full  remuneration;  bat  there  is  a  great 
difference  between  us  and  those  who  merely  go  to  the  Piny  to  seek 
their  own  gratification.  We  arc  almost  compelled,  cx-ofncio,  to  visit 
the  Theatres,  in  order  to  report  proceedings  to  our  subscribers  and 
occasional  readers  :  but  it  is  long  since  we  expluined  to  our  friends 
that  we  could  not,  with  our  moderate  profits,  undertake  to  detail  the 
proceedings  of  Benefits  at  our  own  expense.  Now,  in  the  present  in- 
stance, we  gratuitously  inserted  a  paragraph  in  order  to  promote  Mr. 
Braham's  interests,  and  this  little  Paper  affords  a  more  advantageous 
line  of  circulation  than  any  political  publication  could  effect)  yet  the 
same  gentleman  neglects  to  provide  for  our  admission  to  a  seat,  which 
is  much  less  in  value  than  what  we  had  a  right  to  charge  For  his  pa- 
ragraph. We  care  for  no  man,  let  his  station  be  what  it  may,  beyond 
his  merits.  Managers  and  actors  we  hold  in  respect,  exactly  so  fai- 
as  they  respect  those  principles  which  should  govern  liberal  minds. — . 
Mark  reader — by  that  expression  of  "liberal  minds,"  do  not  suppose 
we  refer  to  pecuniary  liberality  : — we  have  before  challenged  the  green- 
rooms to  produce  one  solitary  instance  of  our  having  accepted  a  bribe 
for  our  theatrical  opinions  or  remarks :  we  have,  in  fact,  rejected 
many  such  offers  :  and  have  invariably  returned  the  gratuity  with  this 
answer,  that  "  we  could  not  accept  of  money  from  any  performer  ; 
although  we  should  always  be  happy  to  speak  of  merit  with  adequate 
praise,  and  be  as  lenient  iu  regard  to  faults  as  possible.*'     After  all 


THE   THEATRICAL    OBSERVER. 


that  \Ve  have  now  srrnl  in  reference  to  Mr.  Braham  on  this  occasion ; 
the  public  will  not  find  th  the  less  just  in  our, remarks  on  his  wonder- 
ful vocal  powers.  We  should  contemn  ourselves  could  we  be  influenced 
by  any  considerations  to  swerve  from  delivering  what  we  feel  to  be  the 
truth.  If  performers  chuse  to  take  advantage  of  our  columns,  and 
our  impartiality,  and  yet  slight  us,  we  cannot  help  it — if  they  do  not 
do  their  duty,  we  shall,  at  least,  endeavour  steadily  to  perform  ours. 

iMiiami       

The  Battle  of  Waterloo  was  last  night,  repeated  to  a  crowded  house 
in  all  parts,  after  which,  for  the  first  time,  a  new  Grand  Melo-drama 
was  produced,  founded  on  that  terrific  tradition  of  Der  Freischutz  ; 
it  is  awfully  splendid,  and  was  well  received,  and  we  have  no  doubt, 
will  prove  highly  productive  to  the  Proprietor  of  the  Amphitheatre. 

Miss  Edmiston. — This  young  lady,  who  some  time  ago,  occupied 
such  a  distinguished  rank  in  the  higher  walks  of  the  tragic  muse  at 
"Old  Drury,"  is  now  performing  in  Glasgow,  with  the  greatest  appro- 
bation of  that  "  thinking  people/'  who  form  its  polished  community. 
From  a  file  of  papers  now  laying  on  our  table  we  select  the  following 
short  extract,  respecting  the  opinion  of  a  brother  critic  of  the  North, 
on  the  representation  of  Lady  Macbeth  by  this  promising  actress: — 
He  says  u  Miss  Edmiston's  appearance  is  in  good  keeping  with  our 
notions  of  Lady  Macbeth  :  her  person  being  above  the  middle  size, 
her  figure  of  fair  proportion,  her  gait  in  some  measure  dignified,  and 
her  gesture  sweeping  and  energetic.  The  only  deficiency  was  in 
strength,  richness  and  command  of  voice.  This  was  amply  compen- 
sated for,  however,  by  her  just  discrimination  throughout,  and  particu- 
larly in  the  fifth  scene  (first  act),  which  we  have  always  considered 
amongst  the  most  difficult  in  the  play.  It  is  here  where  the  extraor- 
dinary character  of  Lady  Macbeth  is  unfolded.  The  crimes  she  is 
about  to  commit  are  here  first  alluded  to,  and  their  atrocity,  combined 
with  the  fearful  imprecation — 

"Come,  all  you  spirits, 
And  fill  me,  from  the  crown  to  the  toe,  topfull, 
Of  direst  cruelty." 

is  apt  to  harass  the  feelings  of  an  audience,  unless  given  with  discri- 
mination and  prudence.  This  was  admirably  done  by  Miss  Edmiston. 
Her  manner  too  of  instigating  Macbeth  to  commit  the  murder  was 
excellent ;  rage,  scorn  and  contempt,  at  his  hesitation  were  delineated 
in  her  countenance,  and  conspicuous  in  the  dignity  of  her  action." 

Miss  Hallande  is  now  at  the  Newcastle  Theatre,  performing  some 
of  her  principal  characters.  Last  week  she  acted  Florctta,  in  The 
Cabinet,  and  obtained  the  most  distinguished  applause.  Miss  H.  is 
supported  in  the  operatic  department  by  Mr.  C.  Bland,  of  the  York 
Theatre,  who  filled  the  part  of  Orlando  in  a  very  creditable  manner,

Last  night,  the  popular  pieces  of  Twelve  Precisely,  (in  which 
Mrs.  Chatterley  acted  with  her  usual  vivacity)  with  J\l<arried  and 
Single,  and  Sweethearts  and  Wives,  were  performed  to  an  excellent 
house.  In  the  last  piece,  Mr.  VT.  Farren,  Mr.  Liston,  Mr.  Vining., 
Miss  Chester,  Mis.  C.  Jones,  Madame  Vestris,  &c.  were  much  ap- 
plauded.

Her  Frfaschutz  is  still  the  order  of  the  night ;  and  draws  num- 
bers to  this  house.  Mr.  Beral's  appeal  ance  on  Mr.  Braham's  night, 
appears  to  have  answered  his  purpose  ;  but  the  Manager  does  not 
shew  any  desire  to  avail  himself  of  a  repetition  of  his  services.  In 
Free  and  Easy,  Miss  Kelly,  Mr.  Wrench,  Mr.  Hartley,  and  Mi. 
W.  Chapman,  were  highly  entertaining. 

His  Royal  Highness. the  Duke  of  Sussex,  their  Royal  Highnesses, 
the  Duke  and  Duchess  of  Clarence,  and  a  large  party  of  distinguished 
persons,  honored  Der  Freischutz  last  night  with  their  approbation. 
"  God  save  the  King,"  was  called  for  on  the  Royal  party  being  recog- 
nised, and  the  solo  parts  were  sung  with  great  effect  by  Miss  Stephens, 
Miss  Povey,  and  Mr.  Braham.  Lady  Francis  Stuart,  Lord  Wil- 
liam Lennox,  Sir  George  Warrender,  Mr.  Ball  Hughes,  &c.  &c. 
were  amongst  the  fashionable  company,  which  completely  filled  the 
house. 

We  are  promised  some  variety  here  shortly.  It  is  said  the  ingeni- 
ous Mr.  Peake  has  been  mending  his  pen,  and  something  amusing 
from  it,  will  soon  appear,  in  which  the  admirable  Mathews  will  have  a 
leading  character. — The  new  Musical  Piece  is  also  in  a  forward  state

Mr.  Kean  closes  his  engagement  this  evening,  and  takes  his  Benefit

THE   THEATRICAL   OBSERVER 


On  Friday  night,  Mr.  Farley  had  his  Benefit  at  the  Cheltenham 
Theatre.  The  Piny  was  Henri  Quatre,  followed  by  High  Life  below 
Stairs.  Colonel  Berkeley,  Captain  A.  Berkeley,  Mr.  Dawkins, 
and  Mr.  Bankes,  were  the  amateurs ;  they  performed  more  like  re- 
gulars  than  many  of  our  corps  dramatique.  The  house  was  as  crowded 
as  Farley  could  possibly  wish,  and  as  hot  as  the  black  hole  at 
Calcutta. 

Miss  S.  Booth  is  now  performing  at  Sheffield.  On  Saturday  last 
this  fascinating  actress  appeared  at  the  theatre  of  that  town,  in  the 
character  of  Albina  Jllandcville,  in  the  pleasant  Comedy  of  The 
tVill ;  and  in  the  afterpiece  delighted  the  audience  with  her  arch  vi- 
vacity,  in  the  representation  of  Priscilla  Tomboy. 

Murder  in  a  Theatre.— -Wonders  will  never  cease — Monday  night 
about  six  o'clock,  our  attention  was  attracted  on  passing  by  the  Olym- 
pic in  Wych  Street,  by  crowds  of  persons  who  had  assembled  round 
that  place  of  amusement.  On  enquiry  as  to  the  cause,  we  were  in- 
formed that  a  private  performance  was  to  take  place,  and  the  evening's 
amusements  were  to  consist  of  Rob  Roy  Jlfacgregor,  Singing  and 
Dancing,  with  the  Farce  of  Bon  Ton.  Having  obtained  an  admission 
we  were  induced  to  enter  the  house,  in  which  there  was  a  sprinkling  of 
journeymen  compositors,  master  bakers,  and  other  respectable  geniuses 
who  entertained  themselves  whistling  in  the  most  discordant  manner, 
until  a  few  forlorn-looking  fidlers  made  their  appearance  in  the  or- 
chestra, and  scraped  away  with  considerable  melancholy,  until  the 
audience's  original  stupidity  was  sunk  into  profound  lethergy.  The 
curtain  rose,  and  the  piece  commenced.  It  would  be  ridiculous  to  en- 
ter into  a  detail  of  the  various  circumstances  which  excited  merriment 
among  the  audience.  Rob  Roy  certainly  acquitted  himself  with  de- 
cency, considering  that  he  has  a  bad  voice  and  little  genius  to  manage 
it.  A  Mr.  Hastings  played  the  part  of  Old  Owen  with  some  merit, 
and  with  attention  he  may  become  a  good  actor.-— We  understand  he 
is  a  country  performer.  But  a3  to  the  majority  of  the  rest  of  the  gen- 
tlemen actors,  we  never  beheld  in  the  whole  course  of  our  theatrical 
experience,  such  murder  as  disgraced  the  boards  of  that  interesting 
little  Theatre.  The  ladies  performed  their  parts  very  well,  especially 
Mrs.  Melville,  and  the  lady  who  performed  Martha.  The  Theatre, 
we  understand,  is  shortly  to  open  with  a  talented  company  ;  and  is  to 
be  considerably  altered  and  decorated.  A  singular  circumstance  took 
place  during  the  performance  last  night,  and  one  seldom  witnessed  at 
any  of  our  metropolitan  theatres  :  the  Manager  paraded  the  pit  and 
boxes  in  his  shirt  sleeves !  and  we  were  much  amused  at  the  jolly  and 
unsophisticated  manner  in  which  he  appeared  among  the  auditory. 

Davis's  Amphitheatre,  the  Surrey,  and  Sadler's  Wells,  were  re- 
spectably attended  last- night.

"  Nothing  extenuate  nor  set  down  aught  in  malice." 

No.  861  Thursday,  Sept.  2,   1824.  Price  \d. 


The  comic  one-act  Piece  of  Intrigue,  the  amusing  Comedy  of  The 
Young  Quaker,  and  the  most  laughable  Farce  of  X,  Y,  Z,  were 
again  performed  together  last  night  to  a  crowded  audience.  Three 
such  pieces  in  one  night  are  almost  too  much  for  our  risible  faculties. 
The  smile,  the  grin,  the  titter,  the  horse-laugh,  were  incessant  proofs 
how  greatly  the  audience  were  entertained.  By  the  bye,  we  have  se- 
veral times  used  the  above  vulgar  expression  of  "  horse-laugh*'  and 
we  do  not  take  on  us  to  defend  its  use,  although  it  is  so  common. — 
But  we  pretend  to  be  stable  critics  ;  and,  perhaps,  there  is  no  incon- 
gruity in  denominating  by  the  term  in  question,  that  violent  exertion 
of  lungs  which  resembles  the  noise  of  a  neighing  horse.  There  was 
a  considerable  deal  of  this  neighing  last  night  ;  particularly  at  the 
White  Lion  ;  the  Token  ;  and  the  odd  effects  of  the  three  last  letters 
of  the  alphabet.  A  new  Farce  is  in  rehearsal  at  this  Theatre. — 
Teasing  made  Easy  is  iD  preparation  :  Mr.  Wilkinson  is  to  be  the 
Peter  Pastoral. 


<£i\Q\igfy  ©penthouse* 

Miss  Stephens  concluded  her  engagement  for  this  season,  at  this 
Theatre,  last  night.  Her  charming  vocal  powers  have  added  to  the 
celebrity  of  Weber's  music,  and  greatly  distinguished  the  English 
Opcra-Housc.  She  most  modestly  assumed  the  character  in  Der 
Freischutz,  which  Miss  Noel  so  cheerfully  resigned  to  her  •  and 
neither  lady  can  suffer  by  the  change  in  question.  We  shall  rejoice 
to  be  again  an  auditor  of  Miss  Stephens,  whose  qualities,  public  and 
private,  are  the  theme  of  general  approbation. — This  young  lady  takes 
her  Benefit  this  evening,  and  appears  for  the  first  time  this  season,  as 
Susanna,  in  The  Marriage  of  Figaro. 

A  very  amusing  Piece,  it  is  said,  has  been  constructed  on  trie  foun- 
dation of  Mr.  Mathews's  late  entertainment  of*  A  Trip  to  America,' 
It  is  to  be  called  u  Jonathan  in  London  ;'*  and  the  inimitable  Ma- 
thews has  the  chief  character.  Report  gives  the  authorship  to  one 
of  our  popular  dramatists  ;  and,  therefore,  much  amusement  may  be 
expected  to  be  derived  from  it.  Also,  as  we  have  already  stated,  a 
new  musical  piece  is  to  be  produced,  and  at  the  same  time  with  the 
above.  This  shews  a  most  energetic  and  praise-worthy  spirit  in  the 
Manager  ;  and  the  Public  cannot  but  appreciate  such  exertion  for 
their  amusement. 


THE    THEATRICAL    OBSERVER 


Davis's  Amphitheatre,— .Last  night  this  Theatre  was  crowded  in 
every  part  to  witness  the  performances  of  The  Battle  of  Waterloo, 
and  the  new  grand  melo-drama  of  Der  Freischntz,  which  has  been 
produced  with  all  possible  splendour,  and  was  received  by  the  audience 
with  every  demonstration  of  satisfaction.  It  would  be  superfluous  to 
say  more  than  that  the  considerable  expense  to  which  the  proprietois 
have  gone,  and  their  exertions  to  amuse  the  public,  must  ensure  their 
success.  The  actors  in  the  latter  piece  deserve  the  utmost  credit. — 
Mr.  Gomersal  personated  Caspar  with  considerable  effect. 

Brighton  Theatre. — Mr.  Dowton  and  Mr.  T.  Cooke  have  both 
finished  their  engagements, — the  former  on  Saturday  last,  when  the 
School  for  Scandal,  and  Barnaby  Brittle,  were  performed  for  his  be- 
nefit. Mrs.  Orger  is  one  of  the  very  best  Lady  Teazles  we  have  ever 
seen  upon  this  stage,  and  we  are  surprise  1  that  the  London  Managers 
do  not  cast  her  into  more  important  pp. its.  In  the  afterpiece,  Rus- 
sell's Jeremy  was  irresistably  comic,  and  J\Irs.  Brittle  was  done  to 
the  life  by  Mrs.  Orger.  On  Monday  the  Devils  Bridge  and  the 
Sleeping  Draught  were  performed  for  t he  benefit  of  Mr.  T.  Cooke. — 
We  never  heard  him  in  such  good  voice  as  on  this  occasion  ;  his 
"'  Fancy' a  Sketch,"  was  exquisite,  and  was  rapturously  encored  ;  and 
he  also  sang  with  great  taste  and  feeling  "  Behold  in  his  soft  expres- 
sive face,"  and  the  duct  with  Miss  Stafford  of  "  My  early  day." — 
Mrs.  Orger  played  Lauretta  with  much  archness  and  vivacity,  and 
sang  in  a  very  pleasing  manner  "  Why  what  can  a  poor  maiden  do." 
The  Floating  Beacon,  which  has  been  in  preparation  for  a  consider- 
able time,  was  produced  on  Tuesday  nigrit  with  new  scenery,  &c. — 
This  evening  Mr.  Philipps  and  Miss  Harvey,  from  the  English  Opera 
House,  make  their  debut. 

Mr.  Vandenhoff,  it  appears,  is  engaged  at  the  Edinburgh  Theatre, 
at  a  salary  of  ten  guineas  per  week.  The  announcement  of  this  en- 
gagement to  the  Edinburgh  audience  was  received  with  thunders  of 
applause. 

Mr.  Charles  Kemble,  we  understand,  is  gone  to  Germany,  not 
only  to  obtain  some  original  Opeias  of  Weber;  but  to  induce  him  to 
visit  this  country,  and  aid  in  the  production  of  his  musical  com- 
positions. 

Birmingham  Theatre. — Aug.  30. — Mr.  Bunn  played,  for  the  first 
time,  the  Duke  of  Gloster,  and  Mr.  Warde  the  Earl  of  Richmond, 
Lady  Anne,  by  Miss  Jar  man  ;  and  the  **  Dashing  White  Serjeant" 
was  sung  by  Mrs.  Waylett.  The  Hypocrite  has  been  performed 
here,  Doctor  Cantwell,  by  Mr.  Warde,  and  Jlfaw-worm,  by  Mr. 
Shuter. 

It  is  reported  that  Miss  Foote,  of  Covent  Garden  Theatre,  is  to 
be  married  on  Monday  next,  to  Mr.  Maine,  of  Burderop  Pa  ik,  Wilts  ; 
a  gentleman  who  has  lately  come  into  the  possession  of  a  large  fortune.

Daily  Bills  of  the  Play. 

"  Nothing  extenuate  ner  set  down  aught  in  malice." 

A*o.  862  Friday,   Sept.  3,    182i.  Price  Id. 


Thb  Benefit  of  Miss  Stephens,  last  night,  at  this  Theatre,  was 
attended  by  an  elegant,  and,  considering  the  extreme  heat  of  the  wea- 
ther, a  numerous  audience.  It  is  truly  delightful  to  see  the  ornaments 
of  the  stage  thus  supported.  Miss  Stephens  sang  with  surpassing 
sweetness  and  brilliancy  the  tine  music  allotted  to  her  character  in 
J)er  Fr-jischutz  ;  and  frequent  bursts  of  delight  almost  interrupted 
the  effect  of  her  songs.  Subsequently,  she  appeared  as  Susanna,  in 
the  Opera  of  The  Marriage  of  Figaro,  in  which  her  naivete  and 
charming  vocal  powers  were  displayed  to  the  greatest  advantage.  Her 
voice  is  heard  to  much  advantage  in  this  Theatre— the  most  delicate 
tones,  even  her  melodious  whispers  are  heard  distinctly,  and.  therefore, 
the  fullest  enjoyment  of  her  songs  is  the  consequence.  We  under- 
stand Miss  Stephens  is  about  to  go  into  the  country,  to  fulfill  her  en- 
gagements at  some  great  Musical  Festivals,  and  next  winter  season 
will  be  found  at  Drury.  Till  then,  we  bid  her  adieu  ;  and  thank  her 
for  the  moments  of  pleasure  we  have  derived  from  her  vocal  exertions. 
Miss  Povey  sang  in  Dcr  Freischutz,  and  also  as  the  Countess,  in 
The  Marriage  of  Figaro,  with  her  wonted  talent,  and  obtained  con- 
siderable applause.  Mr.  Braham  in  the  first  piece,  gave  al!  his  songs 
in  that  powerful  and  beautiful  style  which  ever  distinguishes  him. — 
The  characters  of  the  Count,  Figaro,  and  Antonio,  the  gardener, 
were  very  well  sustained  by  Messrs.  Wrench,  Pearman,  and  I3art- 
ley  :  but  the  roguish  Page  was  acted  to  the  life  by  Miss  Kelly. 

This  evening  two  new  Pieces,  and  the  first  appearance  this  season, 
of  that  admirable  humorist,  Mr.  Mathews,  form  a  most  uncommon 
attraction. 


Jjjap^niar&et  €hcattc. 

The  Hypocrite,  Killing  no  Murder,  and  The  Two  Pages  of  Fre~ 
derick  the  Great,  were  the  performances  of  last  night,  and  attracted 
a  numerous  and  genteel  audience.  The  acting  in  all  was  excellent, 
and  we  hardly  ever  saw  more  gratification  produced.  Mr.  Farren, 
Mr.  Liston,  and  Mrs.  Chatterley,  in  the  Comedy,  received  much 
applause.  The  vivacious  and  ever  good-humored  Harley,  united 
with  Mr.  Liston  in  the  following  Farce,  to  create  shouts  of  laughtej  . 
and  Mis3  Love  and  Madame  Veneris*  assumed  the  characters  of  the 
Pages  with  the  most  engaging  air  in  the  woild. 


THE   THEATRICAL   OBSERVER. 


Tho  Surrey  Theatre,  and  Sadler's  Wells,  have  both  had  their 
usual  share  of  patronage  this  week,  the  amusements  being  well  worth 
the  attention  of  the  public. 

Davis's  Amphitheatre  continues  to  be  most  specially  favored. — 
Much  money  must  have  been  made  there  this  season. 

Cobouro. — A  most  ridiculous  drama,  called  "  George  the  Third, 
the  Father  of  his  People,"  has  been  produced  here. 

Ramsgate. — Aug.  31. — We  have  a  great  variety  of  amusements. — * 
At  the  Marine  Library  there  is  a  promenade  and  concert  every  night, 
at  which  Miss  Dunn  of  Covent  Garden  Theatre  sings. 

Brighton  Theatre. — Sept.  2. — The  Comedy  of  Pride  shall  have 
a  Fall,  was  acted  on  Saturday  nigtrt.  On  Tuesday,  The  Critic,  Puff, 
by  Mr.  Russell. — The  new  Play  of  Charles  the  Second,  will  shortly 
be  produced.  Miss  I.  Patox  has  closed  her  engagement  here,  when 
she  appeared  as  Lady  Teazle,  in  The  School  for  Sca?idal. 

Vauxhall. — This  is  the  last  night  of  one  of  the  most  brilliant  sea- 
sons the  Proprietors  have  had  since  their  commencement.  The  un- 
common exertions  which  they  have  made  to  gratify  the  Public  merited 
the  patronage  they  have  received.  The  Gala  to-night  includes  every 
point  of  attraction  of  previous  evenings. 

Miss  Paton,  we  are  happy  to  hear,  has  recovered,  and  may  be  ex- 
pected to  appear  very  soon  at  the  English  Opera.  She  has  entered 
into  a  new  engagement  for  four  years  with  the  Managers  of  Covent 
Garden  Theatre. 

A  Morning  Paper  says — "  There  is  no  truth  whatever  in  the  report 
that  one  of  the  Honourable  Members  for  Warehem,  is  likely  to  lead 
Miss  Chester  to  the  hymeneal  altar/' 

Mr.  W.  H.  Williams,  of  Drury  Lane  Theatre,  had  his  Benefit  at 
the  Windsor  Theatre,  on  Tuesday  evening,  on  which  occasion  Miss 
Tunstall,  Miss  Withan,  and  Master  Longhurst,  came  from  Vaux- 
hall, whose  combined  powers  as  vocalists,  gave  the  greatest  satis- 
faction to  an  overflowing  audience. 

The  Dublin  theatre  closed  for  the  season  on  Monday  evening  last, 
with  the  performance  of  Brutus.  Mr.  Abbott,  of  Covent-garden 
theatre,  is  to  be  the  manager  of  Crow-street  for  the  ensuing  season.

<£ngli£t)  <©pcra^ou£?. 

Last  night  was  a  most  prolific  one  in  regard  to  novelty.  We  were 
presented  with  two  new  pieces,  and  to  heighten  the  attraction,  Mr. 
Mathews  appeared  for  the  first  time  this  season.  The  first  piece  was 
entitled  "  Jonathan  in  Engla?id}"  and,  we  understand,  is  from  the 
entertaining  pen  of  Mr.  Peake."  The  object  of  this  Farce  is  to  afford 
Mr.  Mathews  an  opportunity  of  presenting  a  moie  extended  repre- 
sentation of  the  peculiarities  of  one  of  his  odd  characters,  Mr.  Jo- 
nathan W.  Doubikins,  whieh  he  had  introduced  into  his  late  perform- 
ance  of  "  A  Trip  to  America."  This  character  offered  a  good  fund 
of  entertainment,  of  which  Mr.  Peake  has  taken  full  advantage. — 
JUr.  Jonathan  W.  is  brought  from  "  the  land  of  liberty"  to  England, 
He  lands  at  Liverpool,  where  his  native  prejudices  and  his  Yankee 
eockneyism  are  first  drawn  foith.  Thence  he  comes  to  London  whore 
some  cross  purposes  place  him  in  several  ludicrous  situations,  which 
terminate  in  due  explanation,  and"  a  considerable  particular  quantity" 
of  genuine  laughter.  There  are,  of  course,  some  other  characters 
introduced  to  connect  the  business  :  and  amongst  these,  Mr.  Keelky, 
as  a  Postillion,  and  Mr.  Hartley,  as  a  feast-loving  Alderman,  were 
very  amusing.  Mr.  S lo man  represented  Doubikin's  Nigger,  Agamem- 
non, extremely  well.  Mr.  Broadhurst  and  Miss  Holdaway  sang 
pleasingly.  This  little  piece  met  decided  success,  although  there  were 
persons  who  evidently  came  prepared  to  oppose  it. 

Afterwards  a  new  Operatic  Entertainment  was  produced,  entitled 
The  Frozen  Lake.  This  is  a  very  pretty  and  interesting  piece,  and 
was  received  throughout,  and  at  the  conclusion,  with  great  applause, 
The  story  may  be  thus  narrated  :  — 

The  Grand  Duke  of  Suabia  has  a  lovely  daughter,  the  Princess 
Louisa,  whom  he  has  designed  to  marry  to  the  Prince  de  Areifbot(rg, 
upon  political  grounds.  The  Prince,  however,  has  more  of  the  sol- 
dier than  the  lover  about  him,  and  in  paying  his  devoirs  to  the  Prin- 
cess, finds  great  relief  in  applying  to  the  amiable  Baroness  de  Rose- 
feld,  lady  in  waiting  to  the  Princess,  for  a  knowledge  of  those  arts 
of  gallantry  which  he  is  called  upon  to  exert  towards  the  Princess  : 
but  it.is  to  very  little  purpose  that  he  seeks  the  assistance  of  th£  fair 
Baroness,  he  can  neither  win  the  affections  of  the  Princess,  nor  does 
he  seem  to  feel  much  interested  about  her  himself,  beyond  the  politic 
eonsideration  of  being  closely  connected  with  the  Grand  Duke.     At 


THE   THEATRICAL  OBSERVER. 


court,  there  is  a  youth  of  the  name  of  Count  de  Linsberg,  who  ap*- 
pears  greatly  interested  in  the  Princess  Louisa.  This  person  was  a 
foundling  adopted  by  the  Grand  Duke,  and  by  him  ennobled.  The 
Princess  seems  equally  engaged  by  the  Count's  amiable  qualities. — 
Prince  de  <Veubourg,  in  the  meantime,  thinks  it  a  duty  to  address 
the  Princess  by  letter,  but  his  awkward  style  induces  him  to  seek 
de  Linsberg's  assistance.  The  latter  avails  himself  of  the  opportu- 
nity of  making  an  appointment  with  the  Princess,  in  her  apartments 
at  nighit;  which  it  turns  out  he  is  warranted  in  doing,  by  being  in  fact 
privately  married  to  her.  De  Linsberg  departs,  and  leaves  the  note-: 
to  be  conveyed  in  a  nosegay,  not  calculating  on  the  Prince  looking 
into  it.  The  latter,  however,  does  so,  and  thinks  Linsberg  has  made 
the  appointment  for  him.  Each  seek  the  Princess's  chamber,  one  bv 
a  key  erroneously  conveyed  to  the  Prince,  and  the  other  by  the  Fro-' 
zen  Lake.  Some  amusing  and  interesting  situations  arise  out  of  these 
circumstances  ;  and  the  escape  of  Linsberg  from  the  apartments  of 
his  mistress  across  the  Frozen  Lake,  leads  to  the  discovery  of  the 
marriage.  The  piece  is  neatlv  wound-up  with  the  Grand  Duke's  re- 
cognition of  the  marriage,  and  the  Prince's  consoling  himself  by  a 
match  with  his  tutoring  Baroness.  Miss  Noel.  Miss  Kelly,  Mr. 
Bahtley,  and  Mr.  Pearman,  did  much  for  the  piece. 

In  Hit  or  Miss,  Mr.  Mathews  again  appeared  with  great  applause. 
Mr.  Rayner  acted  Jerry  Blossom  excellently.  Mr.  Power  performed 
0%Rouhe  0' Daisy  extremely  well,  as  did  Miss  Povey  his  sister  Dolly 
O'Daisy.  The  whole  entertainments  gave  such  delight,  that  they  are 
to  be  repeated  this  evening. — There  was  an  excellent  house. 


The  Comedy  of  The  Busy  Body  was  admirably  acted  last  night. 
Mr.  Harley's  Marplot  was  highly  entertaining.  Mr.  W:  Farren's 
Sir  Francis  Gripe  was  also  a  very  excellent  performance.  Miss 
Chester,  in  Miranda,  was  charming. — Great  applause  was  bestowed 
on  th-3  whole  performance  by  a  genteel  audience. 

Vauxhall  closed,  last  night,  after  a  most  successful  season. — The 
Address  was  spoken  by  Mr.  Williams.

**  Nothing  extenuate  nor  set  down  aught  in  malice." 

No.  864  Monday,  Sept.  6,  1824.  Price  Id. 

Mr.  Peake  has  amply  succeeded  in  extending  the  humors  of  Jo- 
nathan W.  Doubikins,  and  thereby  has  afforded  to  the  admirable 
Mathews  a  further  opportunity  of  creating  infinite  laughter  at  bis 
odd  representation  of  this  highly  comic  character.  On  Saturday 
night  the  piece  created  almost  one  continued  broad  laugh  from  be- 
ginning to  end.  The  feast-loving  Alderman  is  extremely  well  done 
by  Mr.  Bartley  in  look  and  manner.  Mr.  Keeley  amuses  much  as 
the  little  Postillion  ;  and  the  great  Postiliion,  (his  twin  brother)  was 
rendered  very  grotesque  by  the  figure  of  Mr.  Taylecre.  We  could 
have  wished  that  Mr.  Peake  had  made  more  of  this  contrast  ,  but 
the  great  Postillion  is  very  soon  lost  sight  of.  The  whole  of  the 
Farce  told  very  well,  except  the  little  rub  about  American  Freedom 
and  Nigger-buying,  which  we  dare  say  will  be  softened  down  to  meet 
the  sentiments  of  many  who  think  erroneously  that  it  is  unjust,  For 
our  part,  we  have  read  the  American  newspapers,  and  feel  the  pro- 
priety of  the  hit  from  the  many  cattle- like  advertisements  we  have 
read  respecting  the  poor  JViggers.  These  advertisements  are  generally 
in  the  style  of  our  horse  bazaar  announcements.  Really,  no  portion 
of  an  audience  should  show  such  ignorance  and  squeamish ness.  The 
Postillions,  however,  may  dread  a  war  on  account  of  Mr.  Doubikins. 
We  may  risk  it.

The  performances  of  Saturday  night  being  The  Hypocrite,  with 
X,  Y,  Z,  and  A  Roland  for  an  Oliver,  could  not  fail  to  afford  the 
highest  entertainment  to  a  numerous  and  genteel  audience. — The  act-?

improper  and  ridiculous  representation  on  the  Cobourg   stage  of  the 
recently  departed  Monarch,  and  of  living  persons  of  the  first  note  in 
the  kingdom.     It  says  : 

"  We  have  devoted  an  extraordinary  space  in  our  Paper,  to  the 
play-bili  of  the  Coburg  Theatre,  because  we  think  such  a  document 
should  not  die  the  death  of  a  common  qfficthe,  but  on  the  contrary 
should  be  always  produceable,  as  an  answer  to  those  who  choose  to 
complain  of  the  restrictions  of  the  press,  or  the  curtailment  of  the 
liberty  of  the  subject. 

"  The  performance  is  contemptible  in  the  last  degree;  but  that  is 
not  the  point  to  which  we  call  attention — the  miserable  actors  belong- 
ing to  the  Coburg  Theatre  cannot  be  expected  to  personate  nobility 
and  gentry,  and  the  failure  is  only  ridiculout — it  is  to  the  spirit  of 
this  piece  that  we  wish  to  attract  public  indignation.  To  see  the  pious 
excellent  George  the  Third — still  fresh  in  our  hearts  and  memories, 
caricatured  at  such  a  place,  and  even  profanely  borne  to  heaven  from 
its  stage — to  see  the  reigning  Monarch  ridiculed  by  a  stroller,  and  the 
heir  presumptive  to  the  throne  burlesqued  by  an  equally  miserable 
bungler,  are  things  which  we  expected  not  to  see,  and  which  ought 
not  to  be  seen.  To  justify  our  observations,  we  beg  attention  to  the 
bill,  which,  for  ignorance,  impudence,  profanation,  and  absurdity 
mingled,  is  perfectly  unequalled,  and  deserves,  as  we  propose  to  give 
it,  a  perpetuity  of  execration.  It  is  true,  the  suburban  play-houses 
are  out  of  the  jurisdiction  of  the  Lord  Chamberlain,  but  the  magis- 
trates, under  whose  licence  these  people  act,  should  surely  interfere, 
to  prevent  violations  of  decency,  and  exhibitions  of  mingled  falsehood 
and  profligacy  like  the  Piece  in  question,  which  is  disgraceful  even  to 
the  place  at  which  it  is  exhibited." 


Glasgow  Theatre. — Miss  Tree  concluded  a  most  successful  en- 
gagement on  Saturday  last,  and  was  succeeded  last  night  by  the  ce- 
lebrated Mr.  Sinclair  and  Miss  Hallande.  The  play  was  The  Ca- 
binet.— Prince  Orlando,  by  Mr.  Sinclair,  and  Floretta,  by  Miss 
Hallande.  Mr.  Sinclair  was  in  most  excellent  voice — the  "  Beau- 
tiful Maid/*  was  most  rapturously  encored,  and  '*  .Wo  more  by  sor- 
row/* called  for  again  with  excessive  enthusiasm.  Miss  Edmiston,  a 
very  interesting  and  clever  actress,  dropped  down  in  a  fit,  just  as  Mr. 
Sinclair  was  about  to  commence  "  Oh !  lady,  ne'er  will  I  prove  false 
to  thee,"  in  consequence  of  which,  that  air  was  not  sung  :  but  "  All's 
Well,"  substituted  for  it,  at  a  later  period  of  the  evening.  Miss 
Edjmiston's  re-appearance  elicited  bursts  of  applause  from  an  audience 
that  had  previously  manifested  considerable  sympathy.

Ao.  865  Tuesday,  Sept.  7,   1824.  Priee  hi. 

*  Our  article  respecting  the  performance  of  The  Frozen  Lake,  on 
Saturday  night,  was  accidentally  omitted  yesterday  ;  and  we  shall 
now  content  ourselves  with  reporting  the  representation  of  last  night, 
which  was  the  third  of  the  two  new  pieces.  There  is  something:  very 
pleasing  ahout  The  Frozen  Lake — the  story  is  exceedingly  simple, 
hut  heing  very  dramatically  carried  on,  and  ably  acted,  and  the  music 
hy  Mr.  Reeve  and  mi. "Watson,  heing  very  appropriate,  the  whole- 
proves  agreeable.  Miss  Noel  certainly  improves — there  are  some  of 
her  tones  that  have  a  peculiar  plaintiveitess  which  communicates  a  sen- 
sation like  that  we  have  felt  amidst  the  romantic  scenery  of  the  High- 
lands of  Scotland,  when  the  well-timed  Voice  of  a  female  cottager  has 
risen  to  our  mountain  station  from  the  dell  beneath.  Cockney  ears 
may  not  enter  into  our  associations,  and  may  laugh  at  them  ;  hut  still 
we  feel  there  is  a  string  of  nature's  melody  touched  by  this  young 
ladv — it  is  a  wild  note,  that  reminds  us  of  the  days  of  bovish  freedom 
when  all  the  world  appeared  to  us  like  a  wide  romance.  We  do  wish, 
sincerely  wish,  that  Miss  Noel  would  closely  adhere  to  the  pathetic 
and  simple  style — her  forte  evidently  lies  in  that  direction — bravura, 
and  all  the  difficulties  of  science  she  may  attempt,  but  she  will  never 
effect  sufficient  in  that  line  of  song  to  compensate  for  the  abandon- 
ment of  pure  unadorned  melody,  by  which  she  can  with  ease  reach 
the  feelings,  and  therefore  command  the  warmest  approbation.  This 
young  lady  has  been  said  to  sing  somewhat  in  the  style  of  Alias  M. 
Tree,  and  so  she  does  :  but  there  is  a  great  difference  between  them 
in  point  of  tone.  Each,  however,  can  communicate  great  pathos  to 
their  song,  although  Miss  Tree  is  at  present  the  most  cultivated  of 
the  two.  Mr.  Pearman  acted  well,  and  saug  in  a  very  pleasing  man- 
ner. Miss  Kelly  represents  the  character  of  the  Baroness  de  Rose^ 
feld  with  great  felicity  of  manner,  giving  her  lessons  of  gallantry  and 
propriety  to  the  camp-struck  Prince,  in  a  humorous  yet  delicate  style 
that  could  not  but  produce  laughter.  Mr.  Wrench  makes  hit  High- 
ness the  Prince  de  Neubourg,  a  little  too  inelegant,  yet  he  is  highly 
comic  bv  means  of  his  bustling  humor.  The  Grand  Duk*  could  not 
have  a  better  representative  than  Mr.  Bartley,  and  Mr.  Kexley 
acted  the  ambitious  little  Gardner  very  laughably. 

The  adventures  in  England  of  Mr.  Jonathan  W.  DoubUdns,  fol- 
lewed,  and  afforded  the  highest  amusement,  by  dint  of  Mr.  Mathews'*

excellent  representation  of  the  Yankee. — Me  was  encored  in  one  of 
his  songs.  By  the  bye,  in  our  article  of  yesterday  regarding  this 
Theatre,  the  reader  will  be  pleased  to  take  notice  that  in  the  con- 
cluding passage  the  word  postillions  was  printed  instead  of  politicians. 
The  word  ajfiche  in  the  same  number,  was  also  misprinted  ajjicthe. — 
In  Hit  or  Jtfiss,  Mr.  Mathews  was  encored  in  his  two  sporting  songs. 
The  house  overflowed. 


The  Africans,  Intrigue,  and  Love,  Law,  and  Physic,  were  the 
performances  of  last  night.  The  first  piece  was  ably  acted  in  the 
principal  characters.  Mr.  Cooper,  as  Sclico,  and  Mrs.  Chatterley^ 
as  Berissa,  supported  the  chief  interest  in  a  powerful  manner.  The 
humor  was  in  Mr.  Liston's  hands,  and  his  Mug  was  as  comic  as 
ever.  He  was  encored  "  Won't  ye,  icon't  ye.'*  In  Intrigue,  Mr. 
Harley  and  Madame  Vestris  were  vehemently  encored  in  the  duct 
of  "  When  a  little  Farm  we  keep," — There  was  a  good  house.    . 

Surrey  Theatre. — A  new  melo-drama,  called  Der  Freischutz  ; 
or,  the  Demon  of  the  Wolf's  Glen  and  the  Seven  Charmed  Bullets ! 
was  produced  here  for  the  first  time  last  night.  The  scenery  was 
beautiful. — The  Incantation-sccne  was  really  introduced  in  a  style  of 
surpassing  splendour.  Owls  flapping  their  wings — serpents  hissing  in 
the  air — shadows  moving,  and  every  concomitant  of  terror  and  dia- 
bolism were  summoned  into  requisition  to  give  energy  and  effect  to 
this  awful  and  impressive  scene.  It  was  given  out  for  repetition 
amidst  great  applause. — The  house  was  crowded  to  excess. 

Mr.  Davis  had  his  Benefit  last  night  at  the  Amphitheatre,  which 
was  excellently  attended.  The  Battle  of  Waterloo,  with  Monsieur 
Ducrow's  celebrated  Horsemanship,  and  Der  FreUchutz  were  the 
entertainments.  During  Mr.  Ducrow's  wonderful  Feats,  his  horse 
slackened  his  pace,  and  he  fell  with  considerable  force  on  his  back  : 
the  audience  manifested  considerable  uneasiness,  but  fortunately  he 
was  not  severely  hurt. 

Among  the  forthcoming  novelties  at  the  Olympic,  is  a  parodied 
piece  on  Frankenstein,  from  the  pen  of  Mr.  Omera.

There  was  a  very  crowded  house  here  last  night  to  see  Of  Age 
To-morrow,  Sweethearts  and  Wives,  and  the  revived  Comedy  of 
Teaztng  made  Easy.  The  two  former  pieces  excited  great  mirth, 
and  were  excellently  acted.  XV  c  have  never  mentioned  Mr.  Rarren's 
performance  of  stdmiral  Franklin,  in  Sweethearts  and  Wives  ;  but  it 
amply  merits  notice  for  great  truth  of  colouring — both  as  respects 
humor  and  feeling.  The  scene  between  him  and  Miss  Chester,  who 
plays  Eugenia  charmingly,  was  admirably  represented,  and  was 
highly  appreciated  by  the  audience.  Indeed,  every  character  in  this 
operatic  piece  is  ably  sustained,  and  the  usual  broad  laugh  attended 
Mr.  Lisrox  in  his  fascinating  part  of  Billy  Lackaday.  His  melan- 
choly ditty  was  encored  amidst  shouts  of  laughter.  Madame  Yes- 
tris  was  likewise  encored  in  '*  Why  are  you  wandering"  which  she 
gave  with  great  richness  of  tone. 

Teazing  made  Easy  had  not  been  acted  for  the  last  three  years.—? 
On  the  death  of  Mr.  Tokely,  who  so  comically  represented  Peter 
Pastoral,  there  was  no  person  at  this  theatre  at  all  calculated  to  fill 
the  character  ;  and,  also,  there  was  not  a  fit  representative  for  Gam- 
mon, which  part  was  written  for  and  originally  filled  by  Mr.  Mathews. 
These  circumstances  contributed  to  its  being  laid  aside.  It  is  a  piece 
that  is  generally  likely  to  amuse  when  well  acted.  Its  author  is  un- 
derstood always  to  have  wrote  in  a  hurry,  and  was  more  attentive  to 
vivacity  of  dialogue  than  any  great  perfection  in  the  conduct  of  his 
pieces.  He  did  not  appear  to  wield  the  pen  with  any  high  ambition, 
for  dramatic  fame  from  the  light  three-act  comedies  produced  here  for 
several  seasons,  but  his  object  seemed  to  be  merely  to  present  some 
lively  scenes  in  character  with  the  usual  representations  of"  the  Little 
Theatre."  He  was  fortunate  in  having  Tokely  to  fill  two  of  the  most 
amusing  characters  he  has  sketched.  The  peculiar  figure  and  man- 
ner of  the  departed  performer  were  exactly  suited  to  Crockery  anil 
Peter  Pastoral ;  and  it  was  a  resemblence  to  him  in  some  respects, 
no  doubt,  that  suggested  the  idea  of  Mr.  Wilkinson  playing  the  latter 
character  last  night.  In  point  of  figure  Mr.  W.  is  not  unlike  Tokely, 
but  his  features,  and  his  style  are  quite  different.  Mr.  VVilkinsun's 
humor  is  of  a  much  too  quiet  nature — he  curbs  himself  too  much; 
and,  therefore,  does  not  always  reach  the  point  that  might  bs  ex- 
petted.     However,  he  represented  Peter  with  considerable    sue&ess,

and  created  much  laughter  by  his  rural  enthusiasm,  even  in  his  admi- 
ration of  the  view  adorned  by  the  pig-stye  and  the  smoking  dunghill— 
7  how  werey  rural."  Mr.  Harley,  as  Gammon,  was  highly  enter- 
taining. He  made  many  points,  and  altogether  gave  a  most  complete 
picture  of  the  active  impudent  Barrister's  clerk.  The  other  charac- 
ters were  very  well  sustained.  Mrs.  T.  Hill,  as  Miss  Teazer,  was  as 
like  a  boarding-school  young  lady  reduced  a  to  hedge  ale-house-keep- 
er's daughter  as  could  well  be  conceived ;  and  Mrs.  Gibbs  made  Miss 
Manley  as  doubtful  in  point  of  sex  as  manners  could  effect.  The 
whole  went  off  very  pleasantly. 


A  crowded  audience  again  were  delighted  by  the  performances 
which  are  to  be  represented  also,  this  evening.  The  new  musical  drama, 
and  Jonathan's  Adventures,  are  likely  to  have  the  run  of  the  season. 

Miss  Paton  and  Mr.  Pearman  will,  to-morrow,  for  the  first  time, 
sustain  the  characters  of  Agnes  and  Rodolph  in  Der  Freischutz. 

Mr.  Abbott,  late  of  Covent  Garden  Theatre,  the  new  Lessee  of 
the  Dublin  Theatre,  under  Mr.  H.  Harris,  is  now  in  London,  and  is 
reported  to  have  engaged  some  of  the  most  brilliant  Metropolitan 
Stars,  for  the  opening  of  his  first  campaign. 

The  Bristol  Theatre,  under  the  management  of  the  elder  MACREAny* 
last  week  presented  a  considerable  portion  of  novelty  and  talent,  in 
the  accession  of  not  less  than  five  London  actors  of  acknowledged 
ability  : — Messrs.  Archer,  Thompson,  Gattie,  Ellar,  and  Paulo. 
The  Plays  for  the  week  were  Pizarro,  Jane  Shore,  The  Castle  Spec- 
tre, The  Stranger,  and  The  Point  of  Honour  :  the  three  first  named 
gentlemen  performing  the  principal  characters.  A  Pantomime  fol- 
lowed, which  served  to  display  the  graceful  and  unrivalled  agility  of 
Ellar,  as  Harlequin,  and  the  broad  humor  aud  numerous  disastors 
of  Paulo,  as  Clown,  in  the  personation  of  which  motley  hero  he  is 
considered  second  only  to  the  celebrated  Grimaldi  himself. 

That  delightful  actress  and  charming  vocalist,  Miss  M.  Tree,  ap- 
peared at  the  Manchester  Theatre  on  Saturday,  in  her  favorite  cha- 
racter of  Clari,  in  The  Maid  of  Milan,  and  deservedly  obtained  the 
highest  applause  of  an  admiring  audience.  She  was  ably  supported 
by  Mr.  Blanchard,  who  sustained  the  part  of  Rolamo  in  the  most 
pathetic  and  effective  style.  The  afterpiece  was  The  Libertine. — 
Zerlina  was,  of  course,  played  by  Miss  Tree,  with  all  her  wonted 
excellence. 

Miss  Foote — We  understand  that  the  rumoured  marriage  of  this 
lady  with  Mr.  Haines  is  put  off  sine  die.

A  numerous  Slid  elegant  audience  attended  this  Theatre  last  night, 
to  witness  its  popular  round  of  entertainments.  The  new  drama  of 
rrhe  Frozen  Lake  possesses  considerable  interest,  from  its  striking 
situations  and  variety  of  incidents.  It  was  performed  with  great 
ability.  Miss  Kully,  Mr.  Wrench,  Mr.  Bartley,  &c.  particularly 
distinguished  themselves  in  their  respective  parts. — The  piece  was 
much  applauded  throughout.  Mr.  Mathews,  as  the  renowned  Jo- 
nathan W.  Donbikins,  "  poked"  his  fun  and  drollery  in  all,  in  his 
usual  "  genuine"  style,  to  the  audience's  hearty  enjoyment,  and  con- 
cluded the  amusements  of  the  evening  as  Dick  Cypher,  hi  which  he  was 
loudly  applauded,  and  encored  in  his  Sporting  Songs. 

Miss  Paton  was  announced  to  appear  here  this  evening  in  the  part 
of  Agnes,  in  the  new  Opera  of  Der  Freischuiz,  amidst  general  ap- 
probation. 

We  understand  that  the  two  highly  successful  new  pieces  hero  of 
The  Frozen  Lake,  and  Jonathan  in  England,  are  to  be  acted  four 
times  a  week,  and  I)cr  FreiscJiutuz,  on  the  Thursdays  and  Salur- 
days. — A  new  musical  Farce  is  in  rehearsal. 

©ap^iiarftrt  -€$eatrc» 

That  mirth-creating  Farce,  X,  Y,  Z,  was  the  first  on  the  list  of 
pieces  here  last  night  Mr.  Listom's  JVcddy  Bray  is,  almost  without 
exception,  the  most  laughable  of  his  performances.  His  scenes  with 
Mrs.  Mouscr  at  the  coffee-house,  and  with  Dora  Mitmwell,  are  of  a 
nature  to  move  the  muscles  of  the  most  austere.  This  Farce  can  only  be. 
acted  where  Mr.LisTox  is  to  be  found  ;  and  thus,  although,  it  has  been 
long  in  the  possession  of  the  Proprietors  of  Covent  Garden  Theatre, 
by  purchase,  it  may  be  said  to  be  the  property  of  this  comic  gentle- 
man, who,  wherever  he  acts,  alone  confers  the  power  of  its  being  re- 
presented. M r.. Ha rle y,  in  Roscius  Alldross,  was  highly  entertain- 
ing ;  he  contrives  always  to  make  every  secondary  character  he  as- 
sumes of  more  importance  than  was  calculated.  Thus,  last  night,  he 
shared  very  considerably  with  Mr.  Lisxox,  in  creating  the  laughter 
and  applause  bestowed  on  X,   Y,  Z. 

The  Marriage  of  Figaro  followed,  in  which  Madame  Vestris  ap- 
peared as  Susanna.     Her  charming  powers  of  voice,,  and   arch  style 


THE   THEATRICAL    OBSERVER. 


of  acting,  commanded  that  applause  which  was  so  generally  and  warmly 
bestowed.  With  fine  qualities  of  voice,  she  is  not,  however,  equal  te 
her  predecessor  in  the  character,  Miss  Patox.  Madame  Vestrib  is 
never  so  much  admired  as  in  songs  where  but  little  scientific  ornament 
is  required  :  her  full  rich  tones  are  best  suited  to  simple  melody  or 
playful  cadence.  Her  present  attempt  was  in  many  instances  highly 
delightful. 

In  the  last  piece,  Matrimony,  Mr.  VrNiNG  and  Mrs,  Chatterley 
supported  the  characters  of  the  husband  and  wife  with  excellent 
effect. — A  numerous  and  fashionable  audience  retired  greatly  enter- 
tained. 

Mr.  W.  Farren  is  to  appear  in  the  character  of  Lord  Ogleby,  in 
The  Clandestine  Marriage  on  Saturday. 

A  new  Farce,  in  two  acts,  entitled  'Twould  Puzzle  a  Conjuror! 
will  be  produced  on  Saturday  next.  It  is  said  Mr.  John  Poole  is  the 
author. 

Drurv  Lane  Theatre. — The  above  .theatre  is  undergoing  con- 
siderable repairs,  and,  according  to  report,  from  the  extensive  alter- 
ations and  embellishments  which  will  take  place,  the  public  may  ex- 
pect to  see  almost  a  new  theatre  by  the  commencement  of  the  season. 
No  less  than  20  additional  carpenters  were  set  to  work  in  the  theatre, 
yesterday,  and  the  number  of  artists  employed  to  exercise  their  ge- 
nius for  the  amusement  of  the  public  is  comparatively  as  great. — 
British  Press. 

Surrey. — This  Theatre  was  numerously  attended  last  night,  to 
see  D'er  Freischutz  and  The  Burning  Bridge, which  were  excellently 
acted.  At  the  commencement  of  the  last  piece  an  apology  was  made 
for  Mr.  RowBOTHAai,  who  was  taken  suddenly  ill.— Mr.  Young  under- 
took his  character,  and  performed  it  very  well. 

Davis's  Amphitheatre. —  The  Battle  of  Waterloo,  and  Der  Frei- 
schutz, continue  to  attract  greatly. 

Sadler's  Wells. — The  performances  here  are  Harlequin  Faggot 
Maker,  Disguises,  and  Abdellac  the  Terrific,  which  are  calculated 
to  please  in  the  highest  degree.

The  first  appearance  hero  of  Miss  Paton  naturally  attracted  a  nu- 
merous audience,  who  were  desirous  to  hear  her  execute  Weber's  fine 
music.  Following  Miss  Stephens  in  the  character  of  Jlgnes,  in  Uer 
Freischutz,  it  might  be  supposed  that  we  would  indulge  in  a  critical 
contrast  of  the  several  powers  of  these  delightful  vocalists  :  hut  such 
is  not  our  intention,  because  it  is  a  very  useless  and  ungracious  task 
to  draw  contrasts  ;  but  particularly  so  where  the  difference  of  style  is 
so  great,  as  to  give  each  a  due  and  equal  weight  with  persons  of  difter- 
eut  tastes.  Miss  Paton's  forte  is  in  the  execution  of  difficult  and 
brilliant  passages,  and  in  the  sce?ia  she  shone  forth  with  uncommon 
lustre  in  many  of  its  most  elaborate  points.  In  the  long  and  difficult 
song  of  "  Before  my  eyes  beheld  him,"  she  gave  striking  exemplifica- 
tions of  this  excellence,  which  were  felt  and  duly  appreciated  by  the 
audience.  The  Rodolph  of  Mr.  Pearman  was  also  a  most  respectable 
performance  ;  and  though  he  could  not  enter  the  lists  as  a  competitor 
with  him  who  is  admitted  to  reign  in  the  musical  world  without  a  ri- 
val, the  propriety  of  his  action,  the  advantages  of  his  appearance, 
and  his  general  professional  powers,  made  h'im  an  excellent  represen- 
tative of  the  German  forester.  The  duet  between  him  and  Agnes t 
immediately  before  the  trial  shot,  was  executed  with  great  beauty  and 
effect,  and  was  loudly  and  deservedly  applauded.  The  Opera  seems 
still  to  maintain  that  general  interest,  and  to  command  that  attention, 
which  it  first  excited.  The  musical  drama  of  The  Frozen  Lake  fol- 
lowed. 


^ap^matftct  Cjfjeatrc. 

•Married  and  Single,  Sweethearts  and  Wives,  and  No  Song  no 
Supper,  were  the  performances  of  last  night.  In  the  first  piece  Mr. 
W,  Farren,  Mr.  Cooper,  Mr.  West,  and  Mr.  Vining,  were  highly 
amusing,  as  were  also  Mrs.  Glover  and  Mrs.  C.  Jones,  as  Mrs, 
Bicker  ton,  and  Mrs.  Shatterly.  Sweethearts  and  Wives,  was  acted 
in  its  usual  excellent  manner,  and  was  received  throughout  with  great 
applause.  In  the  latter  piece  a  Miss  Parry  made  her  first  appear- 
ance, in  the  character  of  Margaretta,  and  was  received  with  con- 
liderahle  approbation.  Mr.  Harlev,  as  Robin,  and  Mr.  Wilkinson, 
as  Endluf,  were  highly  amusing. — The  houie  was  full. 


THE   THEATRICAL   OBSERVER. 


The  Surrey,  Sadler's  Wells,  and  Davis's  Amphitheatre,  were 
well  attended  last  night. 

Mr.  Young,  the  admirable  tragedian,  arrived  in  town  on  Wednes- 
day, from  Paris. 

The  frequenters  of  the  upper  galleries  in  Dublin  and  London  Thea- 
tres are  called  the  Gods  $  in  Paris  the  upper  regions  is  termed  le 
Paradis. 

The  Comedy  of  The  Clandestine  Marriage  is  to  be  performed  at 
the  Haymarket  Theatre  to-morrow,  with  Mr.  W.  Farrex,  as  Lord 
Ogleby,  and  Miss  Chester,  as  Fanny. 

Theatricals. — In  a  small  town  on  the  south  coast  of  Fife,  an  iti~ 
nerant  band  of  players  have  boon  performing  for  the  last  ten  days.—- 
Finding  their  success  not  yory  ^eat,  they  resolved  to  decamp  ;  in 
order  to  obtain  a  full  house  on  the  last  night  of  acting  (which  was  the 
tragedy  of  Macbeth'),  they  caused  the  bellman,  who  went  through  the 
town  to  announce  the  play,  to  state,  that  those  who  were  not  pleased 
with  the  performance,  would  get  back  their  money  after  it  was  over. 
The  bellman,  however,  was  a  bit  of  a  wag,  for  after  calling  out  what 
we  have  stated,  in  an  audible  voice,  he  added,  in  an  under  tone,  by 
way  of  caution  to  his  fellow-citizens,  "  But,  Sirs,  it's  ill  takin'  aits 
frae  geese." — Edinburgh  Courant. 

Brighton  Theatre. — Mrs.  Orger  took  her  benefit,  and  closed  her 
engagement  on  Monday  night,  with  the  Comedy  of  Jl  Bold  Stroke  for 
a  Husband,  in  which  she  performed  the  part  of  Olivia  in  her  usual  ad- 
mirable manner.  Miss  Poole  and  Miss  Parrock  also  played  delight- 
fully, as  Victoria  and  Marcellina.  P,  Q,  with  the  burlesque  of  Qua- 
drupeds, followed.  In  the  latter,  Mr.  J.  Reeve  played  Abrahamades 
with  great  spirit,  and  introduced  imitations  of  Kean  and  Macready, 
that  were  much  applauded.  Burlesque  is  evidently  this  actor's  forte, 
and  we  shall  hope  to  see  pieces  of  this  kind  repeated.  Mrs.  Orger 
performed  the  part  of  Titilinda  very  excellently,  and  we  are  sorry  to 
have  lost  so  good  an  actress.  The  Opera  of  The  English  Fleet,  and 
Humfustian,  were  performed  last  night,  for  the  benefit  of  Mr.  Foster, 
Mr.  T.  Cooke  performing  the  part  of  Valentine.  The  celebrated 
Opera  of  Der  Freischutz  is  getting  up  here  with  all  its  original  splen- 
dour, and  will  be  under  the  superintendance  of  Mr.  T.  Cooke,  of  the 
Theatre  Royal,  Drury  Lane,  who  will  perform  in  the  piece.  The 
Band  will  be  led  by  Mr.  Mountain,  late  leader  at  the  Theatre  jSoyal, 
Coyent  Garden,  and  English  Opera  House.

**  Nothing  extenuate  nor  set  down  aught  in  malice." 

No.  869  Saturday,  Sept.  11,   1S24.  Price  Id, 


Thk  interesting  performance  of  The  Frozen  Lake,  and  of  Mr, 
Mathews,  as  Jonathan  in  England,  and  as  Dick  Cypher,  gave  am- 
ple entertainment  last  night,  to  an  overflowing  audience.  The  manager 
"of  this  pleasant  Theatre  has  shewn  his  power  to  hit  the  public  taste, 
or  attract  their  curiosity,  by  the  good  quality  and  varied  nature  of 
his  representations.  The  pieces  of  last  evening  were  of  a  light  and 
highly  comic  character  :  those  of  to-night  combine  musical  excellence, 
and  powerful  interest.  Miss  Patox,  who  appears  for  the- second  time 
as  Agnes,  in  Dcr  Frcischutz,  communicates  the  finest  effect  to  some 
parts  of  the  music  allotted  to  her  ;  particularly  to  the  sound  which  is 
sung  hi  the  chamber  opening  to  the  moon-light  view.  We  beg  to  draw 
particular  attention  to  the  brilliant  manner  in  which  she  executes  some 
of  the  passages  in  this  difficult  song.  Mr.  Pearman,  it  will  be  seen, 
has  Mr.  Braham's  late  character,  and  he  supports  it  in  a  highly  cre- 
ditable manner. 

In  The  Frozen  Lake,  Miss  Carr  has  taken  Miss  Noel's  character, 
in  consequence,  we  are  sorry  to  say,  of  the  indisposition  of  the  latter. 
Miss  Carr  does  not  sing;  but  sustains  the  part  very  agreeably. 


Three  of  the  most  amusing  pieces  were  excellently  acted  here  last: 
night,  viz.  The  Young  Quaker,  Intrigue,  and  Two  Strings  to  your 
Bow.  We  have  hardly  ever  entered  this  theatre  in  the  midst  of  the 
performances,  without  the  Ha  !  ha  !  ha's  !  of  the  audience  meeting  our 
ears  as  we  hastily  ascended  to  our  seat.  And  rarely  have  we  passed  the 
threshold  of  the  box  without  feeling  our  physiognomy  considerably 
shortened,  and  a  violent  inclination  come  upon  us  to  join  chorus  with 
those  whose  lungs  were  crowing  at  the  humors  of  the  passing  scene. 
Except  at  the  late  representation  of  that  black  affair,  The  Africans, 
(Jlr.JIIug  not  being  visible)  we  know  of  no  piece  being  performed 
here  this  season,  which  has  not  tended  to  invigorate  existence  by  pro- 
moting that  flow  of  spirits  so  necessary  to  health.  We  once  before 
took  the  liberty  of  suggesting  to  the  physicians  to  prescribe  to  their 
nervous  and  hypochondriacal  patients  a  dose  or  two  of  "  the  Little 
Theatre"  in  the  Havmarket  ;  and  as  we  find  the  medicine  still  retains 
its  virtues,  we  again  intreat  the  attention  thereto  of  the  learned 
faculty.  Madame  Vestkis  last  night  suffered  under  a  severe  cold,— 
There  was  an  excellent  hous& 


THE    THEATRICAL   OBSERVER. 


Newcastle  Theatre. — On  Friday  evening,  being  the  last  night  of 
performance  under   the  present  management,  and  for   the  benefit  of 
Mr.  De  Camp,  the  new  Comedy  of  Charles  the  Second  was  represented 
by  desire  and  under  the  patronage  of  Col.  Teesdale,  and  the   officers 
of  the  1st  Dragoon  Guards.     The  characters  of  King  Charles,  Ror 
Chester,  Captain  Copp,    and  Mary,  were   sustained  by  Messrs.  De 
Camp,  Carter,  Butler,  and  Mrs.  Brudexell. — After  the  Play,  Mr. 
De  Camp  stepped  forward,  as  manager,  and   delivered   his  Farewell 
Address  ;  which  intimated,  that  from  the  great  losses  he   had  met 
with,  it  would  be  impossible  for  him  to  continue  in  the  management 
of  the  theatre.     IVlr.  De  Camp  had  not  withdrawn  mors  than  a  minute 
or  two,  when  he  returned,  and  observed,  "  J  must  again  trespass  on 
your  indulgence,  ladies  and  gentleman.  It  was  with  great  regret,  from 
the  many  kindnesses  you  have  shewn  me,  that  I  took  my  parting  leave 
of  you — but  at  the  moment  I  left  the  stage,  an  act  the  most  black, 
unmanly,  and  treacherous  I  ever  experienced  in  my  life,  was  committed 
towards  me.     I  have  this  instant  been  arrested,  and  I  shall  therefore 
be  under  the  painful  necessity  of  disappointing  you,  by  not  appearing 
in  the  afterpiece  agreeably  to  the  announcement.     T  am  unable  to  per- 
form, because  I  am  in  custody.  You  will  be  anxious  so  know  at  whose 
suit,  and  I  shall  not  hesitate  to  mention  to  you  the  names  of  the  per- 
sons who  have  treated  me  in  this  manner.     The  person  who  has  made 
the  arrest  is  Mr.  Armstrong,  the  solicitor,  and  it  is  at  the   suit  of 
Mr.  Clayton,  the  timber  merchant.  Yet  I  am  thus  shamefully  treated, 
arrested  at  a  moment  when  I  am  quite  unprepared  to  offer  bail,  though 
I  was  to  be  met  with   at  any  hour  of  the  day.     I  saw  this  very  Mr. 
Armstrong  the  day  before  yesterday,  and  he  then  faithfully  promised 
me,  as  a  man  and  as  a  gentleman,  that  he  would  be   satisfied  if  the 
debt  was  paid  by  the  first  of  November.     Ladies  and  Gentleman,  I 
have  to  apologise  to  you  for  thus  troubling  you,  but  I  could  not  avoid 
it  from  the  circumstances  in  which  I  was  placed." — (A  peal  of  groans 
then  followed. — Hisses  loud  and  long,  from   all  parts  of  the  house, 
were  directed  against  the  persons  who  had  given  rise  to  these  remarks 
from  Mi.  De  Camp.)  J.  G.  Clarke,  Esq.  stepped  out  from  the  boxes, 
and  with  a  noble  spirit  of  generosity  released  the  manager  from   his 
dilemma  by  giving  the  bailiff  his   word  that  he  would   see  the  money 
paid.     On  the  following  morning- the  debt,  which,  we  understand,  was 
under  £30.    was  discharged  by  the  same   gentleman.     Mr.  Butler, 
hefore   the  interlude   of  Three   Weeks  after  Marriage,  commenced, 
stepped  forward  and  said,  "  Ladies  and  Gentlemen,  all  has  been  set- 
tled, and  the  performances  will  proceed  to  your  entire  satisfaction." 
Ob  Mr.  De  Camp's  appearance  in  Sweethearts  and  Wives,  which  con- 
cluded the  evening's  entertainments,  he  was  received  with  great  and 
long  continued   applause.     He  came  forward  and  observed,  that  he 
had  been  relieved  from  his  embarrassed  situation  by  the  kindness  and 
generosity  of  his  friends,  who  had  crowded  round  him  with  their  offers 
•f  assistance. "

On  Saturday  night,  that  extraordinary  drama  of  interest  and  fin© 
music,  Der  Freischutz>  was  again  presented  to  a  most  numerous  au- 
dience;  and  Miss  Raton,  for  the  second  time,  supported  the  character 
of  JlgneSy  in  which  she  had  another  opportunity  of  displaying  her 
fine  voice,  and  that  highly  cultivated  style  which  place  her  amongst 
our  leading  vocalists.  On  the  occasion  in  question,  she  met  with  all 
that  warmth  of  approbation  which  her  professional  and  private  qua- 
lities entitle  her  to.  Mr.  Pearmax  ably  executed  the  music  allotted 
to  him  in  the  character  formerly  sustained  by  Mr.  Braitam.  This 
gentleman  always  displays  a  very  pleasing  taste  in  his  songs,  and 
therefore,  although  his  voice  does  not  conquer  all  the  difficulties  of 
some  musical  compositions,  yet  he  gratifies  in  no  common  degree,  and 
particularly  in  a  small  theatre.  The  Overture  arid  the  fine  ckprussf's, 
in  this  operatic  drama,  are  uncommonly  well  executed,  both  by  the 
iuatrumental  and  vocal  department,  and  received  corresponding  marks 
of  approbation  from  the  audience,  who  likewise  did  not  omit  to  reward 
in  that  manner  the  efforts  of  Miss  Fovev,  and  of  Mr.  H.  Phillips. 

In  the  Farce  of  Gretna  Green,  Miss  Kelly  and  Mr.  Wrench  created 
the  highest  entertainment  by  their  personation  of  Mistress  Betty 
Finikin,  and  the  Gentleman's  Gentleman. 

I^a^marfect  €$eatrc. 

The  Comedy  of  The  Clandestine  Marriage  was  the  first  of  the 
performances  on  Saturday  evening.  Mr.  W.  Farrex's  Lord  Qglehj 
was  the  chief  attjactio»  of  the  piece,  and  an  admirably  acted  cha- 
racter it  was.  He  first  attained  public  notice  in  this  part,  and  ever 
since  has  reigned  triumphantly  in  the  lordly  valetudinarian,  atid  in  all 
the  other  aged  imbeciles  of  the  stage.  Miss  Chester  played  Fanny 
in  a  most  interesting  manner.  Mrs.  Gibbs  represented  Miss  Sterling 
rery  well  ;  and,  indeed  the  whole  Comedy  was  excellently  performed. 
A  new  Farce  was  afterwards  pioduced  under  the  title  of  '  Tivould 
Puzzle  a  Conjuror.  This  piece,  which  we  think  is  taken  from  a  French 
drama,  is  founded  entirely  on  the  adventure  of  the  celebrated  Czar 
Peter  of  Russia,  who  intent  on  promoting  the  naval  greatness  of  his 
country,  came  in  disguise,  and  worked  as  a  common  ship-carpenter  in 
the  Dock  Yard  of  Sardam  in  Holland.  The  circumstance,  coming 
to  the  knowledge  of  the  Dutch,  the  German,  and  French  governments, 
each  sends  an  ambassador  with  secret  instructions  to  discover  the 
Monarch,  and  endeavour  to  form  a  treaty  offensive  and  defensive  with 


THE    THEATRICAL   OBSERVER. 


him,  in  opposition  to  the  views  of  the  other  powers.  The  humor  and 
puzzling  part  of  the  affair  arises  out  of  the  difficulty  of  discover- 
ing Peter.  For  it  happens  there  are  many  Peters  in  the  dock-yard  ; 
and  Mynheer  Van  Dunder,  the  burgomaster  of  Sardam,  is  a  person 
of  very  confused  intellect,  and  moreover  cannot  read  the  instructions 
sent  him.  At  length  it  is  discovered  there  are  but  two  foreign  Peters, 
one  of  whom,  of  course,  is  the  Czar,  known  a9  Peter  Micheloff,  or 
some  such  name,  and  the  other  Peter  Stanmitz,  a  deserter  from  a 
Muscovite  regiment.  Many  cross  purposes,  obscurities,  and  comical 
blunders  arise  to  perplex  the  poor  Burgomaster,  who  is  at  last  con- 
vinced that  Peter  Stanmitz  is  the  Czar  ;  and  hence  some  amusing  si- 
tuations arise,  until  all  the  Ambassadors  and  the  wise  Van  Dunder 
are  undeceived  by  the  Czar  himself.  This  Farce  was  pleasantly  acted, 
particularly  by  Mr.  Listox,  Mr.  Harlev,  and  Mr.  Cooper,  who  had 
the  chief  business  in  their  keeping,  and  the  audience,  which  was  one 
of  the  most  elegant  and  crowded  of  the  season,  gave  it  their  fial  of 
approbation.  It  struck  us,  however,  that  the  Czar's  final  discovery 
of  himself  was  not  well  accounted  for,  after  his  anxiety  and  alarm  for 
his  escape  through  the  embargo  which  had  been  laid  on  the  shipping 
of  the  Port. 

Mr.  Ducrow  takes  his  Benefit  this  evening  at  the  Amphitheatre. 

It  is  rumoured  that  the  English  Opera-House  will  be  appropriated 
next  winter  to  performances  entirely  foreign  to  its  original  purposes. 
In  other  words,  it  is  conjectured  that  Italian  Operas  will  take  place 
in  that  Theatre  twice  a  week  during  the  season,  and  that  the  Italian 
company  will  perform  on  alternate  nights  with  Mr.  Mathews. 

-Miss  Isabella  Paton  took  her  benefit  at  Tunbiidge  Wells  Theatre, 
on  Friday  se'night,  as  Lady  Teazle,  the  first  time. — This  young  lady 
had  appeared  at  Drury  Lane,  for  the  last  two  weeks  of  the  season, 
chiefly  in  Mrs.  Jordan's  characters,  with,  perhaps,  more  success  than 
has  been  obtained  since  the  time  of  that  eminent  performer,  especially 
considering  the  lateness  of  the  season. — With  the  exception  of  small 
imperfections,  incident  to  early  youth,  short  experience,  and  a  first 
performance  of  so  arduous  a  part,  Miss  I.  Paton's  Lady  Teazle  fully 
justifies  the  high  reputation  which  her  Letitia  Hardy  and  other  cha- 
racters have  justly  piocured.  We  are  inclined  to  agree  with  the  Lon- 
don critics,  in  considering  this  young  lady  the  first  in  our  recollection 
who  has  possessed,  in  an  eminent  degree,  the  styles  of  both  Miss  Far- 
ren  and  Mrs.  Jordan  ;  her  gracefulness  and  animation  in  the  former, 
and  her  rich  and  original  humor  in  the  latter  being  equally  above  or- 
dinary pretensions — Brighton  Herald.

The  Comic  Piece  of  Blue  Devils,  with  the  Operatic  Comedy  of 
Sweethearts  and  Wives,  and  the  second  performance  of  the  new  Farce 
of  *T would  Puzzle  a  Conjuror,  attracted  a  crowded  attendance  to 
this  theatre  last  night.— The  acting  in  the  latter  piece  is  excellent, 
particularly  by  Mr.  Cooter,  Mr.  Liston,  Mr.  Harley,  and  Mrs. 
Chatterley,  and,  we  have  no  doubt,  it  will  have  a  long  run. 


This  Theatre  was  crowded  in  all  parts  last  night,  to  sec  The  Fro- 
zen Lake,  Jonathan  in  England,  and  Hit  or  Jtfiss ! — Mr.  Wrrnch, 
and  Miss  Kelly,  were  highly  amusing  in  the  first  pieee  ;  Mr.  Pear- 
man  and  Miss  Noel  sang  delightfully.  Mr.  Mathews,  as  Jonathan 
TV.  Doubihins,  kept  the  audience  in  continual  laughter.  Hit  or  Jtfiss 
followed,  and  was  well  performed. 


Olympic  Theatre. — The  greatest  preparations  are  making  for  the 
opening  of  this  compact  and  elegant  '*  little  box,"  which,  we  hear,  is 
fixed  for  Saturday,  the  2nd  of  October.  We  were  favored  the  other 
day  with  a  peep  at  the  interior,  and  were  much  gratified  with  the  many 
improvements  already  made  ;  the  company  engaged  are,  we  under- 
stand, both  numerous  and  talented;  many  names  were  mentioned  to 
hb  of  long  established  celebrity.  The  management,  we  are  glad  to 
hear,  remain  under  the  able  arrangement  of  our  old  friend,  Vining, 
whose  capabilities  as  manager  and  actor  are  well  known.  The  liberal- 
ity of  Mr.  Frampton,  the  proprietor,  is  conspicuous,  in  endeavoring 
to  promote,  at  great  expense  and  exertion,  the  comfort  and  conve- 
nience of  his  patrons. — We  heartily  wish  him  a  successful  season. 

Surrey. — Der  Freischutz,  and  The  Burning  Bridge,  were  again 
repeated  last  night  to  a  numerous  audience. 

Sadler's  Wells. — Two  new  pieces  were  produced  here  last  night, 
which  met  with  decided  success. 

Davis's  Amphitheatre. — Mons.  Ducrow  had  his  Benefit  last  night, 
which  was  crowded.  The  Battle  of  Waterloo,  with  Mons.  Oucrow's 
celebrated  Horsemanship,  the  Chinese  Cavalry,  and  the  Deft  Jlfeg, 
were  the  entertainments,  which  met  with  thunders  of  applause. 

Mr  Elliston  has  been  performing  a  round  of  his  favourite  Charac- 
ters at  the  Birmingham  Theatre.     He  returns  to  town  this  day. 


THE    THEATRICAL   OBSERVER. 


Mr.  Macready  is  to  superintend  the  Tragedies  which  are  to  he 
acted  at  Dniry  Lane  Theatre,  in  the  room  of  Mr  Buxx,  who  has  re- 
tired from  the  management. 

Vox  Wep.er. — The  most  popular  German  Vocal  Composer  now  liv- 
ing is  decidedly  Carl  Maria  Von  Weber.  The  Opera  of  Dcr  Frei- 
schutz  has  proved  a  prize  to  every  German  theatrical  manager  from 
Hamburgh  to  Vienna.  To  the  directors  of  the  Berlin  theatre  it  is 
said  to  have  produced  above  30,000  dollars,  having  been  performed 
upwards  of  fifty  times  in  18  months.  Weber  was  born  at  Eaton,  ia 
Ilolstcin,  in  1783.  He  studied  in  early  youth  the  piano,  at  Munich, 
under  J.  N.  Kalchcr,  and  soon  after  received  letters  in  composition 
from  Michael  Haydn,  at  Saltzburglu  At  eleven  years  of  age  he  was 
so  far  advanced  in  the  science,  that  he  not  -only  performed  in  public, 
hut  composed  short  figure  movements  for  four  voices.  In  1803,  he 
went  to  Vienna,  where  he  completed  his  musical  education  under  the 
guidance  of  the  two  Haydns,  Solieri,  and  Beethoven.  In  1813,  he 
was  appointed  composer  to  the  National  Theatre  at  Prague.  Besides 
his  "  Frdsdiutz,"'  Weber  has  composed  the  "  Prcxiosa,"  a  much 
admired  Opera  ;  also  "  Abul  Hassan''  which  is  said  to  contain  some 
beautiful  music,  especially  a  Polacca,  with  violoncello  accompaniments, 
and  several  other  Operas, 

Miss  Macauley  attracted  much  company  last  week  to  the  Margate 
Theatre.  She  played  jJdelgitha,  Isabella,  and  Lady  Rodolpha  Lu?n- 
berconrt  with  great  applause. 

The  Liverpool  theatre  has  this  season  been  supported  by  the  talents 
of  Mr.  C.  Kemble,  Mr.  Connor,  Mr.  Meadows,  Mr.  Browne,  Mr. 
Knight,  Mr.  Jones,  Mr.  Dowton,  and  Mr.  Blanehard,  Mrs.  Ogilvie, 
Mrs.  Butm,  JMcsdames  L.  Kelly,  M.  Hammersley,  Clara  Fisher. 
Smithson,  Fordo,  and  M.  Tree.  Mr.  Blanehard,  Mr.  Hunt,  and 
Miss  M.  Tree  are  now  performing  there.  Miss  M.  Tree's  health  is  ia 
so  delicate  a  state  as  not  to  admit  of  her  performing  in  more  than  one 
piece  of  an  evening.  On  Wednesday  last  an  apology  was  made  for 
her  non-appearance  in  the. part  of  Ro>dva,  in  the  Barber  of  Seville. 
She  had  previously  played  Mary,  in  Cfmrles  the  Second,  and  showed 
evident  signs  or  indisposition.  Her  professional  exertions  muct  have 
injured  her  health.  It  is  much  to  be  lamented  that  she  suffers  her  in- 
gagements  in  different  and  distant  parts  of  the  kingdom  so  rapidly  to 
succeed  each  other  as  not  to  allow  her  sufficient  time  to  recover  her 
fatigue  of  traveling  and  constant  performing.  The  Theatre  has  been  in 
general  well  attended,  and  the  benefits  of  the  performers  have  been 
very  productive.  Mr.  Terry  is  announced  for  Sir  Pertinax  this  even- 
ing. Mr.  M'Crcatlv  and  Miss  Lacv  are  also  mentioned  as  being  in  the 
catalogue  of  stars  yet  to  appear.

ijjapmiarftct  €f)ratrc. 

The  Comedy  of  The  Hypocrite  was  again  presented  last  night,  and 
attracted  a  very  numerous  audience.  The  performance  of  the  cha- 
racter of  Doctor  Cantwell,  by  Mr.  W.  Farren,  does  credit  to  his  ta- 
lents, because  it  is  an  able  piece  of  acting  out  of  his  proper  line.— 
The  usual  applause  attended  Mr.  Listox's  Maicicorm,  and  the  other 
chief  characters  were  excellently  sustained  by  Mr.  Ccofeii,  Mrs. 
Chatterley,  &c. 

The  new  Farce  of  'Twould  Puzzle  a  Conjuror,  went  off  extremely 
well,  and  Of  Age  To-morroio  most  pleasantly  concluded  the  enter- 
tainments of  the  evening. 


Those  three  eminently  successful  pieces,  The  Frozen  Lake,  Jo- 
nathan in  England,  and  Hit  or  Jlliss,  with  its  "  nguf  Feature,"  were 
performed  last  night  to  a  very  numerous  audience,  who  seemed  highly 
pleased  with  the  whole  of  the  entertainments.  We  were  happy  again 
to  see  Miss  Noel  enabled  to  resume  her  station  here  ;  she  appeared 
in  her  former  character  of  the  Princess  in  the  first  piece,  and  sang 
most  sweetly.  Miss  Kelly  was,  as  usual,  very  clever  in  her  perform- 
ance of  the  Baroness,  and  Mr.  Wrench,  Mr.  Pearman,  Mr.  Bart- 
ley,  &c.  ably  sustained  their  several  parts.  Whilst  P.Icssrs.  Wrench 
and  Pearman  were  on  the  stage  a  loud  laugh  burst  suddenly  from  the 
audience,  which  rather  discomposed  those  gentlemen  ;  they  hesitated 
in  their  dialogue,  and  glanced  an  eye  of  suspicion  at  each  other,  un- 
til it  was  discovered  that  a  "  fair  debutante**  of  the  Feline  tribe, 
had  made  her  entree  at.  the  wing,  but  being  quite  overcome  at  trie 
shouts  of  applause  that  welcomed  '  her  first  appearance  on  any  stage/ 
she  withdrew  in  extreme  agitation. 


Miss  I.Paton,  sister  of  the  eminent  vocalist,  who  made  so  success- 
ful a  debut  last  season,  is  engaged  by  Mr.  Elliston,  for  three  years. 

Miss  M.  Tree,  after   performing   during   the   recess   in   Scotland, 
where   she  was  received  with   very   great  favour,  will  appear  at  the 
Theatres  in  Liverpool,  Manchester,  and  Southampton,  previously  to, 
tjhe  commencement  of  the  winter  campaign  at  the  Theatre  Koyal,  Co- 
Tent  Garden. 


THE   THEATRICAL   OBSERVER. 


Covent  Garden  Theatre  opens  for  the  season  on  the  27th  instant, 
and  Drury  Lane  on  the  29th.  There  is  evident  bustle  and  prepara- 
tion at  each  house,  for  an  arduous  struggle  and  competition. 

Mr.  Rayner  closed  a  week's  engagement  at  York,  and  played  Pen- 
ruddock,  in  The  Wheel  of  Fortune,  for  his  benefit. 

Mr.  Charles  Kemble  is  on  his  return  from  Germany,  where  he 
has  engaged  Weber,  the  celebrated  German  composer,  to  superintend 
two  or  three  Musical  Dramas,  which  are  to  be  produced  at  Covent - 
garden  Theatre. 

Garrick's  First  Play-Bill — When  Garrick  quitted  Ispwich, 
where  he  played  a  tew  nights  in  a  provincial  company,  he  repaired  to 
London  ;  but  it  appears  that  he  was  unable  to  obtcin  an  engagement 
at  any  of  the  great  Houses.  He  was  then  obliged  to  join  the  company 
in  Goodman's-fields,  who,  to  avoid  being  sent  to  prison  as  rogues  and 
vagabonds,  for  acting  without  a  license,  presented  Plays  to  their  au- 
dience, gratis,  charging  them  only  for  the  Concerts.  Here  it  was 
that  the  British  lioscius,  trembling  between  hope  and  fear,  made  his 
first  bow  as  Richard  the  Third.  The  applause  which  he  received  was 
tumultous ;  the  public  caught  with  admiration  the  brilliant  sparks  of 
genius  which  he  emitted,  and  with  their  fostering  hand  bore  him  tri- 
umphantly along  the  current  of  popularity  ;  they  placed  him  at  the 
very  head  of  his  profession,  and  made  him  an  object  of  wonder  and 
admiration  to  the  whole  world.  The  following  copy  of  the  bill  which 
announces  his  first  appearance  is  curious  : 

"  Goodman's  Fields,  Oct.  19,  1741. — At  the  Theatre  in  Goodman's 
Fields,  this  day,  will  be  performed  a  Concert  of  Vocal  and  Instrumen- 
tal Music,  divided   into  two  parts. — Tickets   at  three,  two,  and  one 
shilling. — Places  for  the  boxes  to  be  taken  at  the  Fleece  Tavern,  next 
the  Theatre. — N.  B.  Between  the  two   parts   of  the  Concert  will  be 
presented  an  Historical  Play,  called   the  Life  and  Death  of  King  Ri- 
chard III ;  containing  the  Distresses   of  King  Henry  VI ;  the  artful 
acquisition  of  the  Crown  by  King  Richard  ;  the  murder  of  young  King 
Edward  V.  and  brother  in   the  Tower  ;  the   landing  of  the  Earl   of 
Richmond,  and  the  death  of  King  Richard  in  the  memorable   Battle 
of  Bosworth-rield,  being  the  last  that  was  fought  between  the  Houses 
of  York  and  Lancaster  ;  with   other   true   historical  passages.     The 
part  of  King  Hichard  by  a  Gentleman,*  (who  never  appeared  on  any 
Stage);  King  Henry,  Mr.  Giifard;  Richmond,  Mr.  Marshall ;  Prince 
Edward,  Miss   Hippesley  ;  Duke   of  York,  Miss  Naylor,  &c.  &c. — 
With  an  Entertainment  of  Dancing,  &c. — To  which  will  be  added,  a 
Ballad   Opera,  in   one   act,  called    the  Virgin   Unmasked.     Both  of 
which  will  be  perfomed  by  persons  gratis  for  diversion. — The  Concert 
to  begin  at  six  o'clock  precisely."

The  Comedy  of  The  Clandestine  JMarriage  was  acted  here  last 
night,  to  a  very  numerous  and  genteel  audience.  Mr.  W.  Faiuiek, 
as  Lord  Ogleby,  represented  to  the  life  those  infirmities  which  a  fash- 
ionable life  generally  brings  on  a  little  before  the  sufferer  is  inclined  to 
abandon  the  pleasures  of  the  beau  monde.  He  combined  rheumatism 
and  spasm  with  the  gay  fancies  of  the  tottering  Nobleman,  so  as  to 
create  much  entertainment.  Miss  Chester  was  the  Fanny t  which 
she  represented  in  a  very  engaging  manner.  Mrs.  Gibbs,  as  JlJtss 
Sterling,  gave  a  vigorous  picture  of  the  bad  disposition  of  that  lady. 
Brush,  by  Mr.  Harley,  was  rendered  a  very  amusing  personage; 
and  Canton,  by  Mr.  W.  West,  was  fairly  represented. — No  one  ever 
played  this  character  so  well  as  poor  Wewitzer.  Mr.  Williams  did 
Sterling  in  a  sound  style  ;  and  Mrs.  Windsor,  if  it  were  not  for  her 
comely  smooth  face,  would  have  been  an  excellent  Jfrs.  Heidelberg. — 
Mrs.  Windsor  is  too  tidy  and  nice  a  body,  to  allow  us  to  fancy  her 
for  a  moment  a  coarse  and  vulgar  character.  The  new  Farce  went 
off  very  well.

There  was  another  crowded  bouse  here  last  night,  to  see  The 
Frozen  Lake,  and  Mr.  Mathews  in  Jonathan  IV.  Doubikins,  and 
Dick  Cypher.  The  first  piece  is  a  light  pretty  thing,  and  is  likely 
hereafter  to  be  often  acted,  when  it  can  be  so  well  represented  as  it 
now  is.  Miss  Kelly  and  Mr.  Wrench  got  great  applause.  Of  course, 
it  is  superfluous  to  say,  that  an  incessant  burst  of  merriment  was  ex- 
cited by  the  two  other  pieces,  Mr.  Mathews,  &c.  u  poked  their  fun" 
too  effectually  on  us  to  allow  time  for  gravity. 

(From  a  Correspondent.) 
Sadler's  Wells — A  high  treat  was  given  at  this  house  on  Monday 
to  a  fashionable  and  numerous  audience,  in  the  production  of  an  in- 
teresting melo-drama,  from  the  pen  of  a  Mr.  Judah,  of  the  United 
States  of  America,  where  it  has  been  acted  with  the  most  extraordi- 
nary success,  for  more  than  200  successive  nights.  In  our  opinion  it 
is  decidedly  the  best  piece  of  the  kind  ever  witnessed  here  :  the  plot 
is  completely  original:  the  incidents  peculiar  and  pleasing  ;  the  sce- 
«ery  is  of  that  splendid  description  that  cannot  fail  exciting  admira- 
tion.— we  need  only  add  the  name  of  the  artist,  (Greenwood)  to 
sonvince  our  readers  of  its  excellence  ;  the  music  deserves  more  than 


THE   THEATRICAL    OBSERVER. 


©idiuary  praise,  and  is  another  proof  of  the  capabilities  and  talent 
of  the  composer,  (H.  Nicholson)  ;  the  characters,  which  are  ably 
written,  were  all  finely  delineated  by  the  company,  the  strength  of 
which  is  very  judiciously  brought  into  action.  We  cannot  eulogise  too 
much  the  liberality  displayed  by  the  management,  in  bringing  forth 
so  valuable  an  acquisition  to  their  stage  ;  the  production  of  which,  we 
understand,  was  entrusted  to  the  care  of  Mr.  Gallott,  to  whom 
every  praise  is  due  for  the  inimitable  manner  he  has  brought  it  for- 
ward. We  congratulate  the  proprietors  in  placing  it  in  such  able, 
hands;  and  on  their  success  of  Monday  evening ;  we  have  no  doubt 
but  it  will  run  the  season  ;  at  least  it  deserves  it. — The  loudest  ap- 
plause attended  its  announcement  for  the  week.  A  very  laughable 
piece,  called  "  If  the  Cap  fits  ye,  wear  it"  was  also  produced,  and 
received  the  approbation  it  merited.  The  water-piece  of  "  Abdellacf 
retains  its  high  rank.  Mr.  Bryant  sings  an  Irish  Medley,  which  is 
always  encored. 

The  Surrey  and  Davis's  Amphitheatre  were  most  numerously  at- 
tended last  night,  and  the  performance  at  each  house  went  off  with 
great  approbation. 

The  Aberdeen  Theatre  wa$  opened  on  Tuesday  se'nnight,  and  Mr. 
Sinclair  acted  Prince  Orlando,  in  the  Opera  of  The  Cabinet. 

Mr.  Macready  appeared  at  the  Belfast  Theatre  on  Monday,  in  Co- 
riolanus.     He  is  engaged  there  for  twelve  nights.— British  Press. 

Died,  on  the  18th.  instant,  at  Bath,  Mr.  Stanton,  formerly  and 
for  many  years,  Manager  of  the  Preston,  Lancaster,  and  other  Thea- 
tres in  the  North  of  England. 

A  Mademoiselle  Legros,  one  of  the  dancers  at  the  King's  Theatre, 
lately  went  from  this  country  to  Paris,  having,  as  she  imagined,  care- 
fully packed  in  her  trunk  jewellery  to  the  amount  of  £8000.  sterling, 
a  property,  of  course,  not  wholly  acquired  by  the  agility  of  her  "  light 
fantastic  toe."  Upon  her  arrival  in  the  French  capital,  she  found 
that  her  jewellery-box  was  gone  ;  that  the  robbery  is  supposed  to  have 
been  committed  in  London,  by  persons  who  were  about  her  whilst 
packing  her  trunks. — No  clue  has  yet  been  discovered  that  is  likely  to 
lead  to  their  detection. 

Mr.  Archer,  of  Drury  Lane,  performed  Hotspur,  in  Shakspeare's* 
Henry  the  Fourth,  at  the  Bristol  Theatre,  on  Monday  night. — The 
legend  of  the  renowned  Whittington  and  his  Cat,  has  been  got  up  as 
a  Pantomime,  in  which  the  activity  of  Ellar,  and  the  accentricity  of 
Paulo,  astonished  and  delighted  their  auditors.  Mr.  Grey,  pro- 
prietor of  the  celebrated  Fantoccini,  is  engaged  for  a  limited  number 
of  nights  by  Mr.  Macready.  Last  night  John  Bull,  Monsieur  Ton- 
son,  and  Merry  Mourners,  were  the  performances.  The  excellence 
of  Gattie's  Morbleu  is  well  known  to  our  readers ;  and  on  this  oc- 
casion he  played  it  with  all  his  former  humor  and  judgment.

The  performances  here  last  night,  were  Sweethearts  and  Wives, 

-'Twould  Puzzle  a  Conjuror,  and  JVo  Song  no  Supper.     In  the  latter 

piece  Miss  Love   appeared,  for  the  first  time,  as  Margaret  to,  and 

sang  delightfully.     Mr   Harlot  acted  Robin  very  humorously. — The 

house  was  remarkably  well  attended. 

€ng!i^!j  ©gcra#cn£e. 

A  house  crowded  in  every  part  soon  after  the  opening  of  the  doors, 
was  the  result  of  another    announcement  of  Der  Frcischutz,  with 
Miss  Paton  and  Mr.  Pearman  in  the  two  principal  vocal  characters. 
The  music   of  this  Opera  is,  indeed,  so  strikingly  characteristic,  so 
grand  and  so  sentimental,  that  its  vast  attraction  cannot  be  a  matter 
of  wonder.     Weber,  its  composer,  does  not,  however,  appear  clever 
at  light  pieces   of  music  ;  his  mirthful   airs  want  the   playful   turns 
which  the  French  composers  are  so  happy  in  producing.     The  solemn, 
the  rapid,  and  the  tender  styles,  are  what  he  appears  best  calculated 
to  shine  in.    "Miss  Paton  gave  fine  effect  to  the  scena  ;  her  execution 
of  some  of  the  passages   was  very  brilliant  ;  but  we  have  heard  her, 
we  think,  in  better  voice.     The  delicate  organ  of  these  fair  vocalists 
is  often  affected  by  the  changes  of  the  weather,  and  the  variations  of 
health  to  which  every  one  is  liable.     A  little  indisposition — a  little 
flatness  of  animal  spirits,  are,  thus,  frequently  productive  of  a  most 
material  temporary   injury  to  the  voice  ;  and  which,  although   not 
^mounting  to  serious  indisposition,  and,  therefore,  not  compelling  an 
apology,  is  yet  sufficient  to  lessen  the  clearness  arid  usual  general  effect 
of  the  tones,     This  is  an  evil  audiences  must  frequently  lay  their  ac- 
count with,  and  all  they  can  say  on  the  subject  is,  that  if  they  have 
not  heard  their  favorite  singer  in  her  finest  condition,  yet  they  have 
heard  very  nearly  enough  of  perfection  in  brilliancy  and  sweetness,  to 
command  their  delighted  attention.     Mr*,  Pearman*  has  greatly  raised 
his  vocal  fame  by  his  very  abJc  execution  of  the  music  of  his  character, 
recently  sustained  by  Mr.  Brahaju.     This   gentleman   we  have  ever 
commended  for  taste  and  a  very  pleasing   voice ;  besides   being  ah 
actor    superior   to  most  vocal  performers,,     He  is  always  strictly  at- 
tentive to  the  business  of  the  scene,  and  his  exertions  to  please  seldom 
pass  unrewarded  by  the  audience. 

In  Free  and  Easy,  which    followed,  much   entertainment  was  de- 
rived from  the  acting  of  Mr.  Wkekch,  Miss  Kelly,  &c. 


THE   THEATRICAL   OBSERVER. 


Glasgow  Theatre. — Our  duties  as  '*  Theatrical  Observers,"  na- 
turally  enough,  induce  us  to  occasionally  watcb  the  progress  of  those 
actors  and  actresses  who  now,  during  the  London  recess,  fill  the  most 
prominent  characters  in  the  drama  on  the  provincial  boards — -and 
which  duty  we  cannot  discharge  more  faithfully  than  hy  setting  forth 
the  opinions  of  an  able  contemporary  critic,  relative  to  the  perform- 
ances of  Miss  M.  Tree  and  Bliss  Edmiston,  in  Shakspeare's  cele- 
brated Comedy  of  Twelfth  flight ;  or,  What  you  Will,  lately  acted 
at  the  above  Theatre.  Of  the  former  lady  this  gentleman  remarks  :—  - 
"  Miss  Tree's  Viola  was  animated  in  the  extreme.  There  was  a  na- 
tive buoyancy,  a  sprigbtliness,  and  a  sweet  joy,  through  her  whole 
performance,  that  was  quite  bewitching.  Her  several  interviews  with 
the  Duke,  her  master,  were  chaste  and  faithful,  betraying  not  the 
slightest  symptom  of  love  to  him,  or  jealousy  to  Olivia ;  and  the 
smothered  coldness  with  which  she  received  Olivia's  vows,  was  very 
delightful.  And  then,  when  Malvolia  brought  the  ring  to  her,  how 
knowingly  she  exclaimed — "lam  the  man!"  Nothing,  however, 
could  exceed  the  effeminate  fear,  the  cunning,  and  the  masterful 
agility,  with  which  she  fought  Sir  Andrew.  Madame  Vestris  could 
not  have  thrust  at  him  mote  slyly,  or  with  greater  ease  and  nimble- 
ne'ss.  After  paying  the  just  tribute  of  approbation  to  Miss  Tree, 
our  Northern  brother  critic,  in  language  not  less  remarkable  for  its 
eloquence  than  its  strict  adherence  to  truth,  thus  speaks  of  the  grace- 
ful and  energetic  acting  of  Miss  Edmiston,  in  the  interesting  and  ar- 
duous chat  actor  of  Olivia ;— ■"  We  were  really  delighted  with  Miss 
Edmiston's  Olivia.  We  have  occasionally  missed  her  in  the  Theatre, 
and  heard  that  she  preferred  private  study  to  public  exhibition-— dis- 
regarded any  little  pleasure  which  a  four  hours'  seat  in  the  boxes 
might  afford,  and  drank,  in  the  stillness  of  her  own  parlour,  the  ner 
tiferous  incense  which  Shakspeare's  pages  produced.  Olivia  was  a 
complete  confirmation  of  it ;  and  the  character  combined  all  those 
springs  of  talent  which  constitute  a  great  actress.  Hitherto,  as  we 
formerly  mentioned,  Miss  Edmiston  was  not  general  enough  in  her 
course  of  studies,  and  confined  her  feminine  attractions,  not  so  much 
to,  general,  as  to  particular  traits  of  character.  But  to-night  she  was 
dignified  and  humble,  austere  and  loving,  scornful  and  tender,  grave 
and  humorous — a  mixture  of  theatrical  acquirements,  which  are  not 
very  common.  The  mournful  respect  she  bore  to  her  departed  bro- 
ther— the  indifference,  and,  indeed  contempt,  she  exhibited  to  the 
Duke — the  violent  gust  of  love  that  Cupid  so  slyly  blew  into  her 
breast — and  the  general  good  humor  which  she  kept  through  the 
whole  performance — were  really  quite  surprising.  With  what  a  de- 
lightful majesty,  and  ease,  and  grace,  did  she  draw  in  a  chair,  and 
desire  the  Clown  to  prove  her  a  fool  !  She  scarcely  felt  enough  of 
loving  emotion  in  her  first  interviews  with  Cesario  ;  and  we  thought 
she  was  too  abrupt  in  sending  the  ring  after  Viola.  Cut,  speaking 
generally,  we  can  say,  with  sincerity,  that  no  one  belonging  to  the 
Glasgow  company  is  making  such  rapid  improvement — arising,  too, 
principally  from  her  own  resources  and  her  own  though'

The  Musical  Farce  .of  The  Padlock,  was  performed  last  night,  and 
introduced  to  us  for  the  first  time  in  the  character  of  Leonora,  the 
young  lady  whom  our  readers  will  recollect  made  some  time  ago  a 
very  sudden  and  favorable  debut  here,  on  the  occasion  of  Miss  Paton's 
indisposition.  Bliss  Holmes,  as  this  young  lady  is  named,  evidently 
wants  the  experience  and  confidence  which  a  provincial  theatrical  tour 
for  a  season  or  two  would  afford.  She  has  a  charming  voice,  but  its 
efforts  are  quite  suppressed  by  excessive  diffidence  and  trepidation. — 
We  arc  sorry  to  remark  that  some  part  of  the  audience  were  so  cruel 
as  to  shew  impatience  at  being  made  to  sit  in  judgment  upon  unpre- 
pared talent.  London  audiences  expect  too  much  perfection  to  be 
very  indulgent  in  cases  where  there  is  an  utter  ignorance  of  the  stage 
displayed.  There  is  not  the  least  doubt,  but  that  Miss  Holmes  will 
in  time  become  fully  entitled  to  a  high  station  amongst  our  vocalists 
JJut  she  must  acquire  confidence.  Bliss  Love  played  Lcandcr  coura- 
geously, and  sang  in  her  usual  full,  rich  tone.  Mr.  VVilliams  and 
Mh  W.  West  acted  Don  Diego  and  Jilungo  very  pleasantly. 

Married  and  Single,  and  the  last  new  Farce  followed,  and  greatly 
entertained  a  most  crowded  audience. 

The  eccentric  Mr.  Mathews,  whose  inimitable  humor  has  given 
birth  to  some  of  the  most  entertaining  scenes  on  tins  stage,  again  dis- 
played his  powers  of  producing  mirth  last  night,  and,  as  usual,  had 
a  most  crowded  assembly  of  laughing  countenances.  Mr.  Mathews 
is  remarkable  for  accompanying  his  broad  Farce  with  some  natural 
touches  that  immensely  encrease  the  effect,  and  prove  him  a  close 
and  just  observer,  of  men  and  tilings.  Some  wise  ass  of  a  critic,  se- 
veral years  ago,  upon  occasion  of  his  quitting  Covent  Garden  Theatre, 
took  the  opportunity  of  giving  the  dead  Lion,  (as  he  no  doubt  was 
deemed)  a  passing  kick,  by  asserting  that  he  was  no  comedian  but  a 
mere  mimic  f  The  gentleman  of  the  long  ears  must  have  before  this 
have  been  ashamed  of  his  foolish  hit,  and  have  been  happy  to  hide 
himself  and  his  sage  opinion  beneath  the  shade  of  the  nearest  goose* 
berry  bush:  for  the  truth  is,  that  Mr.  Mathews  has  iu  Lid  various 
entertainments  produced  here,  and  at  all  times,  shewn  his  intimate 
Knowledge  of  human  nature,  and  has  given  such  faithful  picture?

real  character  as  place  him  high  on  the  list  of  those  whose  profession 
it  is  to  cmhody  the  passions,  and  pourtray  the  manners  "  living  as 
they  rise."  Mimicry  consists  in  giving  the  tone,  look,  and  manner  of 
some  known  individual  ;  but  is  not  the  proper  term  for  the  power  of 
giving  resemblances  of  general  character.  Mr.  M.  may,  indeed,  be 
said  to  be  a  mimic,  and  an  excellent  one  also,  yet  he  is  not  a  mimic 
alone,  but  a  correct  personifier  of  many  of  the  passions,  and  all  the 
singularities  that  ever  distinguished  one  man  from  another.  Before 
Mr.  JDoubikins  entertained  us  last  night,  we  had  here  the  amusing 
Operatic  Farce  of  Brother  and  Sister,  (by  permission  of  the  Covent 
Garden  proprietors.)  This  is  a  very  pleasing  piece,  and  was  acted 
excellently,  being  supported  by  the  chief  vocal  strength  of  the  es- 
tablishment. Miss  Paton  sang  delightfully  as  Donna  Isidora,  and 
gave  "  Bid  me  discourse,"  in  the  most  finished  style,  which  would 
have  been  encored  universally,  had  not  many  of  the  audience  justly 
felt  the  fatigue  such  a  repetition  would  occasion.  Miss  Harvey  re- 
appeared here  on  this  occasion,  and  further  confirmed  the  high  opinion 
already  formed  of  her  vocal  power*  and  talent.  Mr.  Piiilipps  in  the 
character  of  Don  Sylvio,  sang  with  his  accustomed  taste  and  effect, 
and  was  generally  encored  in  "  Dove  has  Eyes.!'  Miss  Povey,  as 
Agatha ,  also  contributed  her  very  pleasing  voice  to  the  general  har- 
mony. The  other  characters  were  very  agreeably  sustained  by  Messrs. 
Bartley,  Chapman,  and  KEEi.EYand  Miss  Carr„ 


Among  the  passengers  who  were  injured  by  the  overthrow  of  the 
Buxton  coach,  was  Mrs.  Harvey,  the  daughter  of  the  late  Mr.  Cum- 
mins, of  this  Theatre,  who  it  will  be  remembered,  suddenly  fell  down 
on  the  stage,  and  immediately  expired.  Being  thus  unable  to  fulfil 
an  engagement  into  which  she  entered  with  the  Manager  of  the  Bux- 
ton Theatre,  she  is^now  reduced,  along  with  too  infant  children.  To 
the  most  abject  want  and  misery.  A  statement  was  circulated  from  Sir 
Francis  Darwin,  M.  D.,  and  Mr.  Skinner,  surgeon,  from  which  it  ap- 
peared that  the  bone  of  Mrs.  Harvey's  right  leg  was  broken,  and  that 
she  bad  sustained  several  contusions  and  wounds.  Fortunately  Mr. 
Henry  Johnston,  the  well-known  performer,  happened  to  be  in  Buxton 
at  the  time,  and  with  a  spirit  of  most  commendable  sympathy,  he  im- 
mediately set  about  raising  a  subscription  for  the  unfortunate  lady  ; 
and  we  are  happy  to  say,  with  a  degree  of  success  that  reflects  the. 
highest  credit  on  the  benevolence  of  the  visitors  at  Buxton.  In  the 
course  of  three  or  four  days  the  munificent  sum  of  ^112  14s.  was 
obtained  at  the  different  hotels,  &c.  The  circumstances  of  the  case, 
were  mentioned  to  the  Duke  of  Devonshire,  who  happened  to  visit 
Buxton  for  a  few  hours  on  Monday  ;  and,  with  his  usual  spirit  of  be- 
nevolence, he  instantly  presented  Mr.  Johnston  with  £10,  for  the  re- 
lief of  Mrs.  Harvey. — Provincial  Paper.

44  Nothing  extenuate  nor  set  down  aught  in  malice." 

A  p.  876  Monday,  Sept.  20,  1824.  Price  Id. 

A  numerous  company,  among  whom  we  noticed  some  of  the  most 
brilliant  stars  of  the  West,  honoured  this  theatre,  with  their  presence 
on  Saturday  evening,  to  witness  the  representation  of  Der  Freischutz, 
and  we  were  happy  to  observe  that  they,  as  well  as  the  rest  of  the 
audience,  lightened  with  their  smile?  of  approbation  the  gloomy  hor- 
.lors  of  the  demonial  Wolfs  Glen.  Miss  Paton  sa,ng  with  great 
effect,  and  indeed  the  whole  of  the  performers  exerted  themselves  in 
a  superior  manner.  The  amusing  Farce  of  Gretna  Green  concluded 
the  evening's  entertainments,  in  which  Messrs.  Wrench,  Pearman, 
Miss  P'^vey,  and  Miss  Kelly,  amused  greatly. 

This  evening  a  new  Musical  Farce  is  to  be  brought  forward,  under 
the  title  of  The  Bashful  Man,  in  which  the  inimitable  Mr.  Mathews 
appears  in  a  leading  character. 

l)apin\azlict  GLlytatzc. 

On  Saturday  evening,  the  Comedy  of  The  Country  Girl,  was  per- 
formed here  for  the  first  time  this  season,  and  we  believe,  for  the  pur- 
pose of  introducing  a  young  lady  in  the  arduous  character  of  Peggy. 
She  was  led  on  the  stage  by  Mrs.  Clifford,  who  performed  the  part 
of  Alithea  ;  she  Was  nearly  overcome  by  her  feeling,  but  on  recover- 
ing, her  performance  was  marked  with  great  intelligence  and  spirit ; 
and  she  preserved  throughout  the  smartness  and  point  of  the  dialo- 
gue. Her  voice  is  good,  and  her  articulation  remarkably  distinct. 
We  shall  speak  more  at  large  of  her  qualifications  when  we  have  seen 
her  a  second  time,  and  wc  certainly  anticipate  that  she  will  rank  high 
in  her  profession.  The  audience  testified  their  approbation  of  her 
performance  most  unanimously.  A  more  successful  debut  is  rarely 
witnessed. — But  we  think,  we  have  seen  this  young  lady  play  at  York 
not  long  since. 

Mr.  Vining,  as  SparJcish,  Mr.  Cooper,  as  Harcourt,  and  Mr.  Wil- 
liams's, Moody,  were  excellent.  Mrs.  C.  Jones,  acted  Lucy  to  life, 
and  the  Alithea  of  Mrs.  W.  Clifford,  was  highly  respectable.  The 
Comedy  was  announced  for  Friday  next  with  great  applause  'Twould 
Puzzle  a  Conjuror  followed,  and  was  well  received.  The  Review  con- 
cluded the  night's  amusement. — The  house  was  full  in  all  parts.  A 
gentleman  was  carried  from  the  pit  in  a  fit,

This  evening  Mr.  Liston  takes  his  Benefit  at  the*  Haymarket,  on 
which  occasion  is  to  be  revived  a  favorite  Comedy, 

Daring  Outrage  at  the  Cobourg. — On  Saturday  evening,  after 
the  performance  of  George  the  Third,  a  glass  bottle  was  thrown  from 
the  gallery  on  the  stage,  which  broke  two  or  three  of  the  lamps,  and 
nearly  struck  one  of  the  musicians. — Mr.  Davidge  afterwards  came 
forward,  and  offered  a  reward  of  five  guineas  to  any  person  who  would 
point  out  the  offender,  and,  inconsequence  of  which,  he  was  imme- 
diately apprehended  by  an  officer,  and  carried  to  the  watch-house.

evening  in  honour  of  the  great  success  of  the  Military  Spectacle  of 
The  Battle  of  Waterloo. 

Mr.  Macready  is  now  performing  some  of  his  principal  characters 
at  the  Belfast  Theatre,  with  the  4clat  that  ever  distinguishes  the 
acting  of  this  celebrated  tragedian.  On  Thursday  last  he  appeared 
in  his  favorite  part  of  Virginias,  in  the  Play  of  that  name  ;  and,  as 
might  be  expected,  was  rewarded  by  an  overflowing  audience  with  the 
most  rapturous  testimonials  of  applause.  He  was  ably  supported  by 
Mr.  Hambltn,  late  of  Drury  Lane,  who  enacted  Icilius. 

It  is  said  in  the  theatrical  circles  that  Weber's  Opera  of  Preziosa 
is  shortly  to  be  produced  at  Coveat-gardcn  Theatre,  with  all  its  Ger- 
man spleudour  ;  and  that  another  of  Weber's  Operas,  JRml  Hassan, 
which  contains  a  most  beautiful  polacca  with  ,  violoncello  accompani- 
ments, will  likewise  shortly  be  produced  at  Drury-lane.  An  author 
of  celebrity  has  just  completed  an  Opera  for  the  Covent-garden  ma- 
nagement, the  story  founded  on  an  incident  in  the  reign  of  Frederick 
the  Great,  which  has  never  been  dramatized. 

Mr.  Abbott,  late  of  Covent-garden  theatre,  opens  the  Dublin 
theatre  on  the  23rd  of  next  month.  He  has  engaged  a  respectable 
company,  and  is  likely  to  be  very  successful. 

On  Monday  last  the  Merchant  of  Venire  was  played  at  the  Margate 
theatre,  on  which  occasion  the  veteran  Gardner,  the  proprietor  of 
the  library  and  loo  rooms,  personated  the  character  of  Shylock.  The 
house  was  crowded,  and  Mr.  Gardner — mangre  his  physical  infir- 
mities— acquitted  himself  excellently.     He  is  78  years  of  age.

"  Nothing  extenuate  nor  set  down  aught  in  malice." 

No.  877  TuesdaytrSepl  21^1824.  Price  Id. 

Last  night  a  now  Farce,  in  two  acts,  was  produced  here,  under  the 
title  of  The  BaslifvJ  Man.  It  is  composed  almost  wholly  of  practi- 
cal jokes,  which  the  following  account  will  shew: 

Jlfr.  Blushingion,  (Mathews)  is  sent  hy  his  father  to  Oxford  as  a 
poor  scholar,  where  he  is  to  make  his  way  hy  hard  reading  ;  but  in 
consequence  of  a  large  fortune  devolving  on  him  hy  the  sudden  death 
of  a  relation,  he  quits  college  and  his  hooks,  and  prepares  for  his 
entre  into  polite  life  ,  never  ^having  been  accustomed  to  this,  he  is 
quite  at  fault,  and  his  mauwise  honte  renders  him  completely  ridicu- 
lous. He  is  invited  to  dine  with  Sir  T.  Friendly,  (W.  Bennett) 
with  whose  daughter  Dinah,  (Miss  Povey)  it  is  proposed  to  bring 
about  a  match,  having  beea  acquainted  with  her  brother,  Frank 
Friendly,  (Broadhurst)  at  college.  The  idea  of  this  visit  to  Sir 
Thomas  alarms  him  as  much  as  an  invitation  to  the  infernal  regions 
might  be  supposed  to  do.  He  foresees  lots  of  blunders  and  awkward- 
nesses, and  is  only  induced  to  go  by  the  intreaties  of  his  servant.  He 
is  met  in  the  grounds  by  all  Sir  Thomas's  domestics,  whose  attentions 
and  laughter  overwhelm  him,  and  he  escapes  through  them  to  be  in- 
troduced to  their  master  and  his  lady,  who  await  him  in  the  library. 
Here  he  commits  the  most  ridiculous  mistakes,  till  at  length  Sir  Tho- 
mas coming  upon  the  subject  of  books,  he  feels  a  little  more  at  home  ; 
and  a  Xenophon  in  duodecimo  attracts  his  attention,  which  he  jumps 
on  a  chair  to  reach,  but  instead  of  a  book,  pulls  down  a  closet-door, 
'(Sir  Thomas's  library  being  a  mere  collection  on  wood)  he  falls  on  the 
table  below,  overturns  the  ink-stand,  and  spills  the  ink  on  the  fine 
scarlet  table-cover.  This  shocks  him,  and  he  pulls  out  his  white 
pocket-handkerchief  and  wipes  it  up,  replacing  the  inky  napkin  in  his 
pocket  in  the  hurry  of  the  confusion  that  distracts  him.  The  dinner 
is  now  announced,  and  he  hands  off  the  Butler  in  the  place  of  my 
lady.  At  the  dinner  table  he  is  quite  distressed  how  to  behave  him- 
self— he  spills  the  salt,  which  being  considered  unlucky,  my  lady  re- 
quests him  to  throw  some  over  his  left  shoulder,  when  he  casts  it  in 
their  eyes.  A  glass  of  wine  is  proposed,  when  he  fills  his  glass  from 
the  vinegar-cruet— then  overturns  a  plate  of  hot  soup  on  his  while 
pantaloons — next  he  burns  his  mouth  with  hot  pudding,  and  cools  it 
with  -brandy — finally,  being  quite  overcome  with  his  disasters,  and 
running  down  with  perspiration,  he  wipes  his  face  with  the  inky  hand- 
kerchief, which  blackens  his  whole  countenance,  and  horror-struck  at

this. accident,  and  the  general  laugh,  he  rises,  but  having  the  table- 
cloth put  through  his  button-hole.,  instead  of  a  napkin,  his  movement 
drags  the  whole  contents  of  the  table  orF,  and  ho  flics  in  the  most  lu- 
dicrous confusion.  This  ends  the  first  net;  the  second  is  taken  up 
with  a  plot  of  Sir  Thomas's  family  to  teach  Jllr.  Blushington  con- 
fidence by  an  example  of  impudence  on  their  part.  They  invite  them- 
selves-to  dine  at  his  house,  to  his  perfect  distraction  ;  and  he  is  loft 
to  a  tete-a-tete  with  Jlliss  Dinah  Friendly,  Sir  Thomas's  fair  daugh- 
ter, which  plunges  him  into  further  alarms.  The  young  lady  pretends 
to  faint,  and  he  is  compelled  to  take  her  in  his  arms.  This  situation 
enables  him  to  look  in  her  face,  and  lo!  he  feels  the  influence  of  love  ! 
This  new  feeling,  warms  him  into  a  little  courage;  and  at  dinner, 
having  been  well  plied  with  wine  by  young  Friendly,  he  gains  further 
courage.  A  drunken-scene  takes  place,  and  Jfr.  Blushington  is  at 
last  brought  to  look  all  his  friends  in  the  face,  and  avow  that  the  best 
remedy  for  sheepishness,  is  a  pair  of  preity  eyes  well  applied. 

This  piece  entirely  depends,  as  it  may  be  supposed,  on  the  acting 
of  ]\ Jr.  MATHEWi.  He  admirably  represented  the  whole  character: 
and  in  the  courting  and  the  drunken-scenes,  particularly,  gave  the 
most  amusing  picture  of  an  endeavour  to  overcome  that  bash  fulness 
which  book-worms  are  so  frequently  troubled  with.  Two  or  three 
songs  by  Mr.  Broadiiurst  and  Miss  Povey  were  prettily  sung,  and 
the  piece  altogether  was  quite  successful. 


Mr.  Liston  had  a  bumper  benefit  here  last  night.  Vast  numbers 
were  seen  going  from  the  doors  disappointed  of  gaining  even  lobby- 
room. 

Sadler's  Wells. — A  new  Melo-drame  entitled  Von  Orenburg,  the 
Hungarian  Outlaw  ;  or,  the  Castle  of  the  Lake.  This  piece  is  writ- 
ten by  Mr.  Bryant,  author  of  several  successful  pieces  at  the  The 
Cobourg,  Royalty,  &c.  It  was  received  most  favorably,  and,  no 
doubt,  will  have  a  run. 

Belfast  Theatre. — Mr.  Macready's  able  personation  of  Shaks- 
peare's  principal  characters  continue  to  prove  highly  beneficial  to  the 
almo  t  exhausted  treasury  of  this  theatre.  The  following  judicious 
and  candid  strictures  on  his  performance  of  the  part  of  Coriolanus, 
we  extract  from  a  well-written  and  popular  Irish  Journal,  called  The 
Irishman.  "  We  have  seen  the  Coriolanus  of  Mr.  Mac  ready.  Had 
we  not  seen  the  late  John  Kemele  in  the  same  character,  we  might 
liave  left  the  theatre  with  the  impression  that  Mac-ready  had  person- 
ated this  haughty  aristocrat  with  much  correctness;  but  the  majesty 
of  deportment — the  fine  classic  face — the  ease  and  grace,  and,  if  we 
may  say  so,  sublimity  of  demeanour  which  characterized  every  move- 
ment of  Kemble,  created  such  a  measure  of  excellence  in  our  mind, 
that  it  would  require  such  another  figure  and  face  as  Kemble  to  sa- 
tisfy us  with  tin-  performance  of  Coriolanus."

The  second  performance  of  The  Bashful  Man  was  perfectly  suc- 
cessful. Mr.  Mathews  displays  in  this  piece  some  admirable  acting  ; 
and  the  shouts  of  laughter  that  attended  his  whole  representation  of 
the  blushing  hero  was  a  convincing  proof  of  the  comic  effect  produced. 
We  understand  that  Mr.  Monckieff  is  the  author  of  this  Farce,  which 
is  exactly  what  we  should  expect  from  his  pen,  which  i3  very  expert 
at  stringing  ludicrous  incidents,  although  the  dialogue  i&  often  "very 
poor.  There  are  amongst  the  jokes  in  this  piece  many  old  acquain- 
tances ;  and  in  no  instance  is  a  strikingly  original  one  :  but  still  the 
object  of  raising  a  laugh  is  amply  effected,  and,  so  what  is  the  use  of 
further  criticism  on  the  matter. 

A  Dun  a  Day  followed,  in  which  $fr.  Hartley  shines  as  the  per- 
plexed, credit-giving  tailor.  In  consequence  of  the  change  of  the 
second  piece  yesterday  morning,  Mr.  Baker,  who  was  to  have  played 
Young  Rakely,  in  A  Dun  a  Day,  being  absent  in  the  country,  (he 
not  knowing  of  the  change)  Mr.  Henry  read  his  part.  The  enter- 
tainments concluded  with  Mr.  Mathews's  second  dose  of  fun,  ad- 
ministered in  the  form  of  Jonathan  W.  Doubikvis.—Tlic  house  was 
crowded.

The  Comedy  of  The  Clandestine  Marriage  was  repeated  here 
last  night.— Lord  Ogleby,  b\  Mr.  W.  Farren,  and  Fanny,  by  Miss 
Chester.  We  have  go  recently  spoken  of  the  performance  oMlris 
piece  at  this  Theatre,  that  we  have  nothing  new  to  remark  upon  it— 
Every  one  knows  that  the  infirm  and  lordly  old  beau  is  one  of  Mr. 
Farrem's  very  be ^t  characters — indeed,  no  one  at  present  on  the  stage 
can  venture  to  compete  the  character  with  him— it  is  his  own  property, 
and  possibly  may  not  pass  into  other  equally  successful  keeping  for 
many  a  year.  Mis*  Chester  in  any  character  of  loveliness  and  sen-, 
timent,  is  the  very  personification  of  beauty  and  virtue.  She  baa 
beeu  admired  in  lively  comedy,  but  her  forte  does  not  lie  so  much  in 
that  line,  as  that  of  the  more  serious  parts.  Her  Dinah  Primrose, 
in  The  Young  Quaker,  and  her  Mary  Thornberry,  in  John  Bull,  are 
far  before  her  Beatrice  or  her  Lady  Teazle.  The  other  characters  in 
this  Comedy  were  pleasantly  performed. 

In  Intrigue,  Mi.  HARLEYand  Madame  Vestris  supported  the  cha- 
racters of  °Tom  and  Ellen  excellently.— The  duct   of  S!  IVhcn  a  Utile

Mr.  Cooper,  who,  by  the  bye,  is  one  of  the  most  useful  performers 
any  theatre  can  possess  ;  for  his  talents  can  be  brought  into  play  in 
every  species  of  drama,  except  Pantomime,  he  not  being  light-heeled, 
nor  capable  of  playirg  the  fool,  except  we  reckon  Poor  Tom,  in 
Shakspeare's  King  Lear. 

Covent  Garden  Theatre  opens  on  Monday  next,  with  the  tragedy  of 
Romeo  and  Juliet,  and  the  last  new  Pantomime  of  Harlequin  and 
Poor  Rolin.  Mr.  C.  Kemble  is  to  be  Romeo,  and  Miss  F.  H.  Kelly 
Juliet. 

Mr.  Kean  has  most  handsomely  given  up  his  engagement  at  Lime- 
rick, (£40  per  night)  on  finding  that  the  theatre  did  not  fill.  He  is 
engaged  for  twenty-eight  nights  at  Drury-lane,  at  £48  per  night. 

Mr.  Charles  Kcmblc,  whose  assiduity  in  catering  for  the  gratification 
of  the  lovers  of  the  Drama,  is  always  on  the  alert,  is  reported  to  have 
engaged  that  eminent  French  tragedian,  Talma,  at  an  enormous  sa- 
lary, for  twelve  nights,  as  an  experiment. 


To  the  Editor  of  The  Theatrical  Observer. 

Mr.  Editor, 

Excuse  me  for  my  abruptness,  if  you  consider  it  so,  but 
really  I  should  feel  pleasure  in  being  informed  what  learned  physician 
had  the  felicity  of  acquainting  the  public  in  your  Friday's  Observer, 
of  the  nervous  and  very  affecting  state  of  the  organs,  or  rather  the 
'pipes  of  our  female  vocalist.  Believe  me,  he  has  instructed  me  in  a 
very  useful  lesson,  and  in  future,  I  shall  never  visit  the  theatre  when 
the  weather  changes,  and  poor  Miss  P.  &c.  are  supposed  to  be  out  of 
order,  without  first  consulting  you  whether  it  is  proper  to  do  so  :  for, 
certainly,  to  use  your  enlightened  expression,  as  we  say  of  a  good 
horse,  1  wish  always  to  see  tUem  mfine  condition.  I  feel  certain  that 
the  manly  Editor  never  wrote  the  article,  but  has  been  imposed  upon 
by  some  effeminate,  and  would-be-critic. 

I  remain,  your's,  &c.

"  Nothing  extenuate  nor  set  down  aught  in  malice." 

No.  879         Thursday r Sept.  23,   1824.  Price  Id. 

There  was  a  crowded  and  elegant  audience  here  last  night,  to  see 
Mr.  Mathews  in  The  Bashful  Man,  and  Jonathan  in  England.  He 
was  highly  amusing  in  each,  and  was  encored  in  his  song  in  the  for- 
mer piece,  and  also  his  first  one  in  the  latter.  In  Military  Tactics, 
which  was  the  Interlude,  Mr.  Pearman  had  an  encore.  Miss  Povet, 
Miss  Holdaway,  and  Mr.  Broadiiurst,  sang  very  pleasingly. 

Sweethearts  and  Wives,  'T  would  Puzzle  a  Can  juror,  and  a  Roland 
for  an  Oliver,  were  the  entertainments  last  night,  and  afforded  great 
amusement  to  a  most  numerous  and  genteel  audience. 

Mr.  W.  Farren  takes  his  benefit  here  to-night,  and,  as  our  play- 
bill will  shew,  presents  a  mass  of  entertaining  pieces.  Love  and  Gout 
has  not  been  acted  for  several  years.  Mr.  Lis  ton  also  repeats  his 
Comic  Address  in  the  character  of  Mawworm. 

Covcnt  Garden  Theatre  will  be  opened  for  the  season  on  Monday 
next,  September  27.  The  other  nights  of  performing  during  the  week 
will  be  Wednesday,  Thursday,  and  Saturday. 

Boulogne  English  Theatre. — Mr.  Smithson,  the  proprietor  of 
this  Theatre,  has  conducted  it  with  great  spirit,  although  he  has  not 
been  so  successful  as  he  deserved.  Mr.  Wallack  and  Mr.  J.  Knight 
lias  been  acting  here,  and  the  charming  Miss  Smtthson  is  engaged  for 
a  few  nights.  Many  of  our  best  Comedies  and  Farces  have  been  very 
respectably  acted. 

Mr.  Kean's  Benefit  at  the  Galway  Theatre,  was  a  complete  bum- 
per. The  Galway  Paper  states,  that  during  Mr.  Kean's  stay  in  that 
city,  some  unknown  villain  or  villains,  for  purposes  which  no  one  can 
divine,  cut  and  destroyed  the  pannels  of  his  carriage. 

*  The  Theatre  at  Sydney  appears  to  be  in  a  very  flourishing  state/ 
said  a  gentleman  to  John  Kemble,  speaking  of  the  Botany  Bay  the- 
atricals. "  Yes,"  replied  the  tragedian.  "  the  performers  ought  to  be 
all  good,  for  they  have  been  selected  and  sent  to  that  situation  by  very 
excellent  Judges.1'

THE   THEATRICAL   OBSERVER. 


To  the  Editor  of  The  Theatrical  Observer. 

Sir — There  is  no  subject  which  has  been  held  up  to  public  censure 
more  than  Amateur  theatricals.  The  finger  of  ridicule  has  been 
pointed  against  those  votaries  of  the  drama  who  choose  to  amuse  them- 
selves in  this  species  of  entertainment,  and  tbe  sarcastic  grin  of  con- 
tempt ever  accompanies  the  mention  of  our  amateur's  name.  Certainly 
there  are  many  who  commit  "  murder  most  foul/'  yet  the  generality 
are  respectable — some  few  excellent  instances  are  before  our  eyes  ;  and 
when  we  recollect  the  boyish  days  of  our  two  first  tragedians,  Keast 
and  Young,  likewise  of  many  other  excellent  actors,  not  forgetting 
the  celebrated  Harley,  wo  must  own  that  private  theatricals  are  not 
to  be  despised.  I  myself,  when  a  youth,  had  the  honor  of  playing 
with  Mr.  Young  ;  little  did  he  then  think  that  he  would  ever  be  at  the 
head  of  the  first  theatre  in  the  world. 

I  have  been  induced  to  make  the  above  remarks,  in  consequence  of 
witnessing  the  representation  of  Morton's  School  of  Reform,  at  the 
Amateur  Theatre,  Crown  Street,  on  Friday  last. — (I  have  heard  it 
had  boon  performed  once  before)  It  was  well  got  up,  and  played  in 
a  superior  style.  Mr.  Percival's  General  Tarragon  possessed  a  vein 
of  humor,  natural  and  unaffected.-—  His  performance  was  strongly 
marked,  and  characterized  by  genuine  comic  humor.  His  style  of 
playing  brought  forcibly  to  my  recollection  the  peculiar  merits  of  the 
celebrated  Quick  :  he  possessed  all  the  quaint  ire  ss  and  expression  of 
his  great  original ;  the  all-subduing  talent  which  never  failed  of  in- 
spiring wonder  and  delight  in  every  beholder,  was  not  looked  for  in 
such  a  novice  as  Mr.  P.  ;  he,  however,  acquitted  himself  in  a  manner 
highly  gratifying  to  himself  and  his  friends.  Mr.  Morrisoon's  Fre- 
derick, was  most  vile  ;  and  Mr.  Selwyn's  Lord  Awndale,  dull  and 
inanimate.  We  were  highly  delighted  by  the  admirable  manner  in 
which  Robert  Tyke  was  played  by  Mr.  Hamylton:  he  gave  a  natural 
and  truly  effective  picture  of  the  rustic  rogue. — The  confidence  of  big 
early  scenes,  and  remorse  and  agonies  of  his  latter  ones,  were  dis- 
played in  a  style  the  frequenters  of  Amateur  Theatres  are  seldom  ac- 
customed to  witness. — He  gave  the  detail  of  his  father's  death  in  an 
excellent  and  affecttfig  manner.  T  have  seen  that  great  master  of  the 
passions,  Mr.  Emery,  in  this  character,  and  likewise  his  talented  suc- 
cessor, Mr.  Rayner,  and  must  admit  their  delineations  to  be  truly 
awful.  To  draw  a  comparison  betweeu  them  and  my  present  subject, 
would  be,  perhaps,  ridiculous  ;  yet  I  may  venture  to  aver,  that  when 
time  shall  have  matured  the  rising  talents  of  Mr.  H.  he  will,  in  tbe 
true  sense  of  the  word,  become  not  only  a  useful  but  a  good  actor. — 
He  appears  to  be  very  young — his  dress  was  not  suitable,  and  his 
dialect  in  many  parts  very  deiecti've.  i.]L;s  Leicester's  Mrs.  Fer- 
ment was  an  excellent  pciicnr.ance.  The  JVedding  Day,  and  Is  He 
Jealous?  concluded  the  evening's  entertainments.  *  A  *

"  Nothing  extenuate  nor  set  down  aught  in  malice." 

No.  880  Friday,  Sept.  24,  1824.  Price  Id. 

This  day  is  the  Anniversary  of  the  first  appearance  of  this  Paper. 
Three  years  have  now  elapsed,  and  it  can  with  truth  be  said,  that  its 
pages  have  always  been  marked  by  an  endeavour  to  support  the  best 
interests  of  the  British  Stage,  which  includes  the  histrionic  and  li- 
terary character,  with  the  moral  reputation  that  should  distinguish 
the  national  Theatre  of  an  enlightened  and  well  regulated  society.— r 
Our  excrtious  shall  not  cease,  and  we,  therefore,  may  confidently  look 
forward  to  a  long  continuance  of  the  same  liberal  patronage  which 
we  have  attained  in  every  class. 

The  Frozen  Lake  still  affords  exercise  for  the  skill  of  Miss  Kelly, 
Mr.  Pearman,  Mr.  Keeley,  &c.  who  glide  over  the  affair  very 
smoothly.  In  Der  Freischutz  we  again  had  the  pleasure  of  hearing 
Miss  Patox  sing.  We  presume  she  will  support  the  same  character 
in  this  piece  when  produced  at  Co  vent  Garden  Theatre,  where  it  is  in 
preparation  with  the  greatest  possible  effect.  If  Mr.  Bennett  is  to 
play  there  his  present  character  of  Caspar,  we  do  in  treat  of  him  to 
get  rid  of  that  peculiar  false  emphasis  which  so  often  disfigures  his 
delivery.  His  own  car,  if  he  has  no  judicious  friend  at  hand,  might 
surely  rectify  this. 


Mr.  \V.  Farren  had  his  Benefit  here  last  night— we  were  not  pre- 
sent, and,  therefore,  know  nothing  about  it. 

The  Young  Lady  who  made  her  debut  as  Peggy,  in  The  Country 
Girl,  the  other  night,  appears  for  the  second  time  this  evening. 

We  hear  that  the  celebrated  French  tragedian,  Talma,  is  engaged 
for  twelve  nights  at  Covent  Garden  Theatre.  It  is  said  that  this  gen- 
tleman was  born  in  Dean  Street,  Soho,  and  went  in  early  life  to  France, 
notwithstanding  which  he  speaks  the  English  tongue  fluently.  ,  We 
conceive,  however,  that  his  performance  of  English  characters  will  be 
more  curious  than  correct. 


THE   THEATRICAL   OBSERVER. 


Covcnt  Garden  Theatre  will  be  opened  for  the  Reason  on  Monday 
next,  September  27.  The  other  nights  of  performing  during  the  week 
will  be  Wednesday,  Thursday,  and  Saturday. 

Surrey. — This  beautiful  and  pleasant  Summer  Theatre  is  nightly 
attended  in  a  most  gratifying  manner,  and  the  able  efforts  made  in 
every  department  to  merit  public  favor  is  thus  jnstly  rewarded.  The 
performances  of  to-night  are  Der  Freischutz,  with  The  Burning 
Bridge. 

A  Son  of  Mr.  Harris,  one  of  the  Proprietors  of  Covent  Garden 
Theatre,  was,  lately,  nearly  drowned  on  the  French  coast. 

Mr.  Liston  is  not,  we  understand,  to  appear  in  London  during  the 
ensuing  winter  season.  Report  says,  he  has  in  a  view  a  retreat  for  a 
time,  to  the  environs  of  Bath,  to  enjoy  his  past  fame,  and  the  solid 
returns  it  has  produced  him. 

The  Manchester  Theatre  had  to  boast  of  a  numerous  and  brilliant 
audience  on  Saturday  night.  The  Play  was  Shakspeare's  sterling 
Comedy  of  As  You  Like  It,  in  which  the  fascinating  Miss  M.  Tree 
performed  the  love-sick  and  romantic  Rosalind,  with  all  her  wonted 
excellence  :  indeed,  the  part  never  possessed  a  more  graceful  or  effi- 
cient representative.  In  addition  to  the  songs  in  the  drama  she  in- 
troduced (her  own)  '  Home,  sweet  home,'  and  "  Rest  Warrior,  rest' 
which  were  applauded  to  the  "  echo."  The  veteran  Blanchard,  ap- 
peared as  Touchstone,  and  he  never  embodied  this  extraordinary 
creation  of  the  great  poet's  mind  with  more  animation  and  masterly 
judgment.  The  afterpiece  was  that  mirth-inspiring  Farce  of  Simpson 
and  Co.  and  the  distressing  dilemmas  and  whimsical  situations  of  the 
poor  tortured  and  perplexed  Mr  Simpson,  kept  John  Bull  and  his 
fair  spouse  on  the  broad  giin  for  the,  rest  of  the  evening. 


To  the  Editor  of  The  Theatrical  Observer. 

Sir, 

Well  knowing  your  willingness  to  oblige  whenever  it  is  in 
your  power,  I  take  the  liberty  of  requesting  you  will  inform  me,  upon 
what  principles  the  Amateur  Theatre,  in  Crown  Street,  is  carried  on. 

The  fact  is  this  ; — it  having  been  remarked  by  many  of  my  friends, 
that  I  have  a  tolerable  ability  for  the  drama,  I  wish  to  take  a  cha- 
racter at  some  private  theatre,  by  way  of  trial — therefore,  if  you  can 
give  me  any  information  with  this  view,  you  will  extremely  oblige, 

A  Constant  Readdr. 

We  have  inserted  the  above  in  order  to  effect  the  writer's  object,  as 
we  are  utterly  unacquainted  with  the  theatre  in  question,  or  Any  one1 
connected  with  it. — Ed.

14  Nothing  extenuate  nor  set  down  aught  in  malice." 

No.  881  Saturday ',  %)f.  25,  1824.  Prke  Id. 

1$a#?maxUct  €ijcaim ' 

The  second  appearance  of  the  "  Young  Lady,"  in  the  character  of 
J\Ii88  Peggy,  in  the  Comedy  of  The  Country  Girl,  drew  a  very  nu- 
merous audience  to  this  jhouse  last  night.  As  far  as  a  judgment  can 
be  formed  from  a  performance  of  a  single  character,  we  may  take  on 
ourselves  to  pass  a  decided  opinion  of  this  debutante.  Her  represen- 
tation of  The  Country  Girl  is  replete  with  proofs  of  talent  for  the 
stage,  yet  it  is  n©t,  in  every  respect,  the  true  Miss  Peggy.  The 
great  charm  which  Mrs.  Jordan  threw  around  the  character  was  an 
indescribable  naivete  ;  an  artless  manner  concealing  much  natural  cun- 
ning. In  her  style  of  performing  the  part,  there  was  nothing  to  be 
discovered  to  lead  you  to  suppose  there  was  any  acting,  except  where 
the  deception  Peggy  practices  on  her  bud,  requires  its  display.  Now, 
this  '*  Young  Lady"  (we  know  her  by  no  other  name)  is  frequently 
found  acting  where  all  should  be  pure  simplicity.  We  know,  that  be- 
fore this  art  of  simplicity  can  be  fully  attained,  great  confidence  is 
required,  and  much  practice,  which  we  are  inclined  to  believe  this 
"  Young  Lady"  has  not  yet  had.  It  is,  therefore,  with  a  considera- 
tion of  this  alterable  defect,  that  we  venture  to  assert,  when  further 
experience  shall  shew  her  in  the  full  possession  of  her  powers,  she 
will  command  general  admiration.  Even  at  present,  she  is  capable, 
in  the  character  in  question,  to  elicit  very  just  applause,  and  which 
was  showered  upon  her  animated  efforts  very  profusely  last  night.— 
She  has  qualities  that  evidently  calculate  her  to  shine  in  a  superior 
sphere  of  the  drama,  and  she  may  therefore  look  forward  to  become 
a  London  star  at  no  very  distant  period.  Her  person  is  very  pre- 
possessing ;  and  her  features  capable  of  much  varied  and  agreeable 
expression :  'her  speaking  voice  pleasing,  and  perfectly  at  her  com- 
mand, and,  in  general,  admirably  modulated  to  the  sense  of  her  au- 
thor. In  short,  we  have  very  high  hopes  of  this  "  Young  Lady,"  who 
has  but  to  attain  a  little  more  experience,  and  we  may  expect  her  to 
be  ranked  amongst  our  London  favorites. 

Mr.  Cooper,  Mr.  Johnson,  and  Mr.  Vining,  represented  the  Gen- 
tlemen of  the  piece  very  well.  The  latter  in  the  drunken-scene,  acted 
with  superior  effect.  Mrs,  Clifford; as  Jllithea,  end  Mrs.  C.  Jones, 
-as  Lucy,  assisted  very  ably  in  giving  due  effect  to  the  Comedy.  But 
of  Mr.  Williams's  Moody,  we  must  make  this  remark,  that  the  cha- 
racter required  more  of  the  air  of  the  man  of  breeding  than  he  threw 


THE   THEATRICAL   OBSERVER. 


into  it.  At  the  close  of  Epilogue,  spoken  very  excellently  by  the 
"  Young  Lady,"  several  rounds  of  applause  marked  the  approbation 
of  the  audience. 

A  new  Musical  Piece,  in  one  act,  entitled  Birds  without  Feathers, 
is  in  rehearsal  here,  and  will  be  produced  next  week. 


Another  crowded  audience  was  assembled  here  last  night,  to  see 
the  Musical  Farce  of  The  Bashful  Man,  witb-the  Comic  Operetta  of 
Is  He  Jealous  ?  and  the  Farce  of  Jonathan  in  England.  In  the  for- 
mer piece,  Mr.  Mathews  acted  with  his  usual  comic  humor,  and  re- 
ceived thunders  of  applause.  Mr.  Wrench  and  Miss  Kelly,  in  the 
second  piece,  performed  with  their  accustomed  excellence ;  and  Mr. 
Mathews,  in  Jonathan  W.  Doubikins,  kept  the  audience  wide  awake. 

Covent  Garden  Theatre  will  be  opened  for  the  season  on  Monday 
next,  September  27.  The  other  nights  of  performing  during  the  week 
will  be  Wednesday,  Thursday,  and  Saturday. 

Sadler's  Wells. — This  Theatre  has  been  very  numerously  attended 
this  week  to  witness  the  representation  of  a  new  melo-drama,  entitled 
Von  Orenburg,  the  Hungarian  Outlaw  ;  or,  the  Castle  \  of  the  Lake. 
Mr.  Mortimer,  in  the  Ontlaw,  surprised  us  with  his  excellent  acting. 
Cartlich,  as  a  Fop  in  a  dragoon  dress,  reminded  us  of  a  *  Tenth." 
No  person,  we  are  certain,  can  play  the  Fool  better  than  Vale  ;  and 
Bryant,  in  the  Irishman,  performed  and  sang  with  much  spirit. — 
This  gentleman  is  an  acquisition  both  as  an  author  and  performer. 
Mrs.  Wilkinson  is  an  excellent  heroine;  and  Miss  Johnston  never 
sang  better. 

Brighton  Theatre. — A  new  after-piece,  entitled  The  Cupid  of 
Brighton,  altered  from  a  piece  produced  at  the  Adelphi  Theatre  last 
season,  for  the  Benefit  of  Mrs.  Baker,  has  been  acted  here  twice.— 
Russell  has  an  amusing  character  in  it,  and  a  view  of  the  Chain  Pier 
has  been  introduced. — It  is  by  Mr.  Morris,  and  possesses  consider- 
able merit.  Mrs.  Baker,  it  is  said,  is  engaged  at  one  of  the  great 
winter  theatres,  and  we  hope  this  report  is  true,  for  we  know  no  one 
who  would  be  a  more  valuable  acquisition  to  either  of  those  houses, 
in  the  characters  sustained  by  Miss  Foote  and  Miss  Beaumont,  than 
this  lady.  She  appeared  on  Wednesday  in  Little  Pickle,  and  was 
rapturously  encored  in  the  Hornpipe  ;  and  on  Thursday,  by  particular 
desire,  the  part  of  Young  Norval,  in  the  Play  of  Douglas.— Der 
Freischutz  has  done  wonders.  T.  Cooke  and  Mountain  have  been

The  piece  called  Dog  Days  in  Bond  Street,  with  'Twoidd  Puzzle 
a  Conjurer,  and  Married  and  Single,  were  acted  on  Saturday  night 
to  a  numerous  audience,  and  afforded  much  entertainment. 


The  Frozen  Lake,  and  Der  Freischut.z,  were  the  performances  of 
Saturday  night.  In  the  latter,  the  fine  music  executed  by  Miss  Paton, 
Miss  Povey,  Mr.  Pear  man,  Mr.  H.  Phillips,  &c.  gave  the  highest 
delight  to  a  most  numerous  audience. 

Direful  Robbery. — We  have  to  mention  a  disaster  which  has  be- 
fallen three  of  our  popular  public  singers,  as  they  are  called  in  the 
Provincial  Paper.  Messrs.  Evans,  Collyer,  and  Fitzwilliam  have 
been  jointly  and  severally  robbed  of  their  portmanteaux,  which  not 
only  contained  their  clothes  and  music,  but  their  cash  !  This  mishap 
is  stated  to  have  happened  on  the  road  between  Ilfracombe  and  Barn- 
staple, by  the  cutting  off  the  said  portmanteaux  from  their  carriage  ! 
A  reward  of  £20.  is  offered  for  all  the  cash,  jewellery,  music  paper, 
and  other  valuables  therein  contained  ;  from  whence  we  may  gather 
that  their  individual  loss  in  respect  of  the  said  clothes,  cash,  &c.  is 
of  a  very  considerable  amount  I  We  hope  the  miscreants  who  could 
so  shamefully  rob  three  such  popular  singers,  who  were,  we  under- 
stand, in  high  glee  at  the  amount  of  cash  their  successful  talents  had 
produced  them,  will  be  speedily  caught  and  brought  to  condign  pu- 
nishment. 

Miss  M.  Tree,  of  Covent  Garden  Theatre,  arrived  at  Southampton 
on  Monday,  under  an  engagement  to  play  four  nights  at  that  theatre. 
She  played  at  Manchester  on  Saturday  evening,  and,  travelling  during 
almost  the  whole  interval,  arrived  only  two  hours  before  she  was  to 
appear  on  the  stage.  In  consequence,  no  doubt,  of  such  great  exer- 
tions, she  was  taken  very  ill  on  Wednesday  with  a  spitting  of  blood, 
&c.  :  which,  to  the  great  regret  of  her  numerous  admirers,  has  dis- 
qualified her  from  acting  at  Southampton  any  more  this  feason.— Bri-

there  are  opportunities  for  a  close  adherence  to  actual  character, 
which  Mr.  Mathews  takes  full  advantage  of.  This  Farce  is  a  tissue 
of  incidents  rendered  very  comic  by  the  acting  in  the  principal  part, 
and  without  Mathews  it  would  be  a  perfect  nonentity.  Miss  Kelly, 
in  the  character  of  Mrs.  Dashington,  in  the  comic  piece  of  Belles 
without  Beauac,  was  highly  amusing  :  and  afterwards  Mr.  Mathews 
kept  up  the  laugh  as  Jonathan  W.  Doubikins — The  house  was  crowded 
in  every  part. 

Mr.  Stevenson,  the  veteran  box-hook  keeper  of  this  Theatre,  has

Mr.  Harlev,  Mr.  Cooper,  &c.  render  that  piece  entertaining  enough.

the  character  of  Rodolph  with  considerable  effect ;  and  in  the  latter 
Mr.  H.  Kemble,  Mr.  Rowbotham,  Mr.  Loveday,  &c.  performed  their

Mr.  Mathews's  performances  and  all  the  entertainments  of  this 
Theatre,  are  soon  about  to  close  for  the  season.  Next  week  is  the 
final  one,  when  the  doors  will  be  closed  on  a  series  of  entertainments 
that  have  attracted  in  an  uncommon  degree.  Last  night  another 
crowded  house  proved  the  attractions  of  The  Bashful  Man,  Mr. 
Jonathan  IK  Doubikins,  &c— There  was  much  laughing,  and  many 
palmy  honors  were  bestowed. 

I^apmiarfeet  €fpatre« 

The  Comedy  of  The  Rivals  was  acted  here  last  night,  cast  with 
all  the  comic  strength  erf  the  company.  At  the  head  of  the  list  we 
had  Mr.  W.  Farren,  as  Sir  Anthony  Absolute,  a  character  which  at 
Drury  Lane  is  in  high  keeping,  being  there  represented  by  Mr.  Dow- 
ton,  in  a  style  superior  to  what  any  other  performer  at  present  on 
the  Metropolitan  Stage,  can  reach.  Mr.  Farren's  Sir  Anthony,  we 
think,  may  rank  next  to  Mr.  Fawceit's.  He  certainly  shews  a  per- 
fect conception  of  the  character  ;  and  it  is  only  in  his  physical  qua- 
lities that  any  defect  is  apparent.  His  scene  with  his  son  the  Captain, 
where  he  finds  him  opposed  to  his  wishes,  and  that  where  he  remarks 
his  overdone  readiness  to  marry  any  piece  of  deformity  paternal  care 
might  provide  him,  were  excellently  sustained,  and  properly  marked 
by  the  very  numerous  and  genteel  audience.  Mr.  Cooper  acted  Faulk- 
land  with  much  discrimination,  and  was  ably  supported  by  Mrs. 
Chatterley.  Miss  Chester  represented  Lydia  Languish  very  well, 
and, certainly,  looked  the  character  excellently,  as  far  as  her  features 
were  engaged,  but  her  person  does  not  bear  out  the  idea  of  the  tdeli- 
cate  and  romantic  Miss  Languish.  Mr.  Viking  played  Captain  Ab- 
solute respectably.  He  wants  a  firm  style  for  this  character,  which 
is  absolutely  necessary  to  give  point  to  its  dialogue.  Mrs.  Windsor's 
tone  of  voice'does  not  give  sufficient  pungency  and  effect  to  Mrs. 
Malaprop's  lapses  in  her  "  auricular  tongue."  However,  she  acted 
the  part  very  respectably.  The  character  of  Bob  Acres  was  conferred 
on  Mr.  Liston  ;  but  we  must  say  that,bating  his  physiognomy,  he  does 
not  make  it  half  so  humorous  as  Mr.  Harley  docs.  Mr.  Liston  too 
often  trusts  to  a  cock  of  his  eye  for  creating  a  laugh  ;  and  in  Acres 
this  will  hardly  suffice  for  the  filling  up  which  an  active  and  clever 
performer  such  as  Harley  gives  to  it.  The  Comedy,  altogether, 
seemed  to  give  much  entertainment,  and  was  followed  by  the  two 
pleasant  pieces  oVTwould  Puzzle  a  Conjuror,  and  the  Dtvil  to  Pay.

No.  985         Thursday' Sept.  30,   1824.  jgrttfe  U. 


Cogent  4frrbcn  Cijeatre. 

On  last  night,  the  second  of  the  season,  was  presented  the  Comedy 
if  Pride  shall  have  a  Fall.  This  piece  is  an  extraordinary  combination 
of  nonsense  and  humor.  Really,  sitting  it  quite  out,  and  being  asked 
what  one  thinks  of  it}  distracts  the  pericranium  in  no  slight  degree. 
We  have  smiled,  we  have  laughed,  we  hare  thought  we  had  heard; 
some  high  sounding  passages  ;  but  after  all,  the  confounding  questioa 
•f  what  is  all  thin  about'}  intrudes,  and  puts  one  out  of  temper  be~ 
sause  we  cannot  answer  it.  If  the  Reverend  George  Ciioly  com*-. 
jJoses  his  sermons  as  lucidly  as  his  plays,  his  congregations  will  find 
no  more  reason  for  being  wiser  and  Letter,  than  his  audiences,  liy 
the  bye,  we  may  here  take  the  liberty  of  objecting  to  dramatical  par- 
sons. In  our  humble  opinion,a  clergyman  is  a  person  who  devotes  his 
time  and  his  thoughts  to  the  promotion,  amongst  his  less  gifted  fellow 
creatures,  of  a  perfect  veneration  for  the  Deity,  and  a  just  and  vir- 
tuous feeling  between  man  and  man.  It  is  his  duty  to  compose  moral 
end  religious  orations  and  addresses — to  visit  the  sick  and  the  dis- 
tressed, and  to  perform  every  other  duty  of  humanity.  It  is,  there* 
fore,  a  perfect  abandonment  of  clerical  propriety,  to  be  found  com- 
posing dialogues  to  be  spoken  from  a  public  stage,  without  any  earthly 
reason  but  to  make  people  laugh  and  to  obtain  money.  The  Play  was 
well  acted  to  a  numerous  audience. 

Afterwards,  Brother  and  Sister  was  excellently  supported  by  Mr. 
Fawcett,  Miss  Paton*,  Miss  Love,  &c.  who  were  warmly  welcomed. 
SPhc  latter  lady  was  encored  in  "  Taste,  oh,  taste.'' 


gnglijtfj  <©pcra4fou0^ 

Mr.  Mathews  gave  us  three  doses  of  fun  last  night,  which  was 
found  very  reviving  to  the  body  of  the  audience.— In  the  first  piece  of 
Jonathan  in  England,  Mr.  Mathews  was  encored  in  his  song,  "  Two 
pound  ten,"  and  his  Yankee  song  ;  and  in  Hit  or  JUiss,  which  was 
the  last  piece,  Mr.  Mathews  was  called  for  by  part  of  the  audience 
to  sing  the  Race  song  twice,  but  in  consequeuce  of  the  length  thoro 
was  some  opposition,  when  Mr.  M.  came  forward  and  said,  "  Slave  tQ 
your  will,  I  live  but  to  obey,  and  as  I  shall  soon  be  laid-up  for  the 
season,  I  will  start  for  two  more  heats  out  of  the  three." — H* 
accordingly  repeated  two  verses  of  the  song. 

A  numerous  audience  were  assembled  here  last  night  to  see  Sweei~ 
hearts  8f  Wives,  'Twould  Puzzle  a  Conjuror,  and  Paul  and  Virginia,

Much  ado  about  Nothing  was  represented  last  night,  in  the  same 
admirable  style  (hat  it  was  acted  in  the  previous  season.  It  is  a  Play 
that  almost  entirely  depends  for  effect  on  the  manner  in  which  the 
two  principal  characters  are  supported.  In  this  respect  it  had  due 
justice,  from  the  excellent  performance  of  Miss  Chester  and  Mr.  C. 
Kejmble,  as  Beatrice  and  Benedick,  Miss  Chester  acts  the  cha- 
racter of  the  arch  man-hater  with  vivacity  and  very  attractive  man- 
ner. Her  interviews  with  Benedick,  and  her  scene  in  the  garden,  were 
well  executed,  and  received  much  applause.  Mr.  C.  Kimble  plays 
Benedick  in  that  fine  easy  style  for  which  he  is  so  celebrated.  He  is 
remarkable  for  always  retaining  an  air  of  good  breeding  in  every  cha- 
racter he  supports,  and  in  this,  the  man  of  high  life  and  pleasant  hu- 
mor was  rendered  eminently  conspicuous.  Although  the  chief  enter- 
tainment derived  from  this  Comedy  lies  in  the  bringing  together  thesft 
antipodes  of  the  matrimonial  sphere,  jet  there  is  some  excellent  hu- 
mor of  a  broader  kind,  derivable  from  the  gentlemen  of  the  watch. 
Mr.  Farren's  Dogberry  produced  much  langhtcr,  and  Mr.  Kekley's 
Verges  was  a  good  piece  of  still-life  acting.  Hero  was  well  repre- 
sented by  Miss  Jones  ;  and  Mr.  Connor  and  Mr.  Baker  performed 
with  much  propriety  the  parts  of  Don  Pedro  and  Don  John ;  and 
were  Mr.  Mason  to  relax  from  a  certain  stiffness  of  manner,  which 
he  always  retains,  he  would  have  represented  Count  Claudio  infinitely 
better.  Aud,  also,  we  take  the  liberty  to  observe  on  this  young  gentle- 
man and  very  young  performer,  that  in  addition  to  a  natural  style  of 
acting,  he  should  regulate  his  elocution  according  to  the  character  he 
fills  ;  for  a  pompous  delivery  is  rarely  suitable  except  in  tragedy,  tie 
possesses  a  good  figure  and  many  requisites  for  the  stage,  and  we 
should  be  sorry  to  see  these  qualities  lost  for  want  of  attention  to  an 
easy  and  natural  manner.  The  pretty  melo-drama  of  The  Hunter  of 
the  Alps  followed,  and  gave  great  delight. 

Mr.  Stevenson's  Benefit  here,  last  night,  was  very  numerously  at- 
tended, aud  The  Vampire,  Is  He  Jealous  ?  aud  Where  shall  I  Dine  I 
which  were  the  pkcc~:  presented  on  the  occasion,  gave  great  satisfac- 
tion. 


THE   THEATRICAL    OBSERVER. 


Ipap^marltet  Centre* 

There  were  The  Young  Quaker,  '  T would  Puzzle  a  Conjuror,  and 
The  Devil  to  Pay,  at  this  Theatre  last  night,  ft  was  what  is  called 
a  ticket-night,  or  a  benefit  by  sale  of  tickets  for  different  members  of 
the  establishment. — A  new  Farce  is  to  be  presented  to-night. 


Surrey. — There  was  a  very  good  house  here  last  night,  for  the 
Benefit  of  Mr.  Buckingham  and  others.  On  this  occasion  Mr.  Kent, 
who  appeared  last  season  at  Covent  Garden  Theatre,  as  Richard  the 
Third,  acted  that  character,  and  obtained  a  great  deal  of  applause. 
Every  one  will  allow  he  possesses  a  great  deal  of  energy,  and  repre- 
sents the  character  in  a  highly  respectable  manner.  He  hit,  by  mis- 
take, a  poor  Catesby  a  smart  blow  on  the  face  with  his  sword. 

Olympic  Theatre— -To-morrow  evening,we  observe> commences  the 
season  at  this  elegant  little  "  Box  ;" — the  preparations  have  been  ex- 
tensive, the  [improvements  numerous  and  jndicions.  We  were  gra- 
tified the  other  day  with  a  peep  at  the  interior,  which  has  received, 
the  most  costly  and  beautiful  embellishments — the  pannels  of  the 
boxes  are  painted  blue,  relieved  with  a  neat  frame  of  crimson,  inlaid 
with  wreaths  of  laurel  and  a  profusion  of  gold  ornaments  ;  the  private 
boxes,  as  well  as  the  public,  have  also  !;ccn  considerably  improved  ; 
a  saloon  has  been  built  in  the  pit  for  the  convenience  and  comfort  of 
the  visitors  to  that  part  of  the  theatre,  and  is  fitted  up  with  peculiar 
neatness.  The  bill  of  fare  is  more  full,  and  possesses  a  greater  va- 
riety than  any  ever  before  issued  to  the  public  : — a  ballet,  of  which 
report  speaks  highly,  under  the  singular  title  of  Hydrophobia,  is 
among  the  entertainments  announced,  and  a  parody  upon  the  very  suc- 
cessful Opera  of  Der  Freischutz,  from  the  pen,  we  understand,  of 
the  author  of  Dr.  Syntax,  Sec.  Every  exertion  on  the  part  of  Mr. 
FRAMProN,  the  proprietor,  has  been  put  forth  to  render  it,  in  point 
of  splendour  and  accommodation,  inferior  to  no  establishment  in  the 
metropolis.  We  are  glad  to  find  the  management  again  placed  under 
the  able  direction  of  Mr.  Viking,  whose  talent  in  the  difficult  capa- 
cities of  manager  and  actor,  are  known  sufficiently  to  the  public  to 
render  comment  from  us  unnecessary.  Mr.  Parker,  we  observe,  will 
be  at  his  old  post,  the  boxcs;  whose  attention  and  politeness  has  al- 
ways been  proverbial.

**  Nothing  extenuate  nor  set  down  aught  iu  malice." 

Ao.  887  Saturday,    Oct.  2,   1824.  Price  Id. 


Tjir  Comedy  of  The  Clandestine  Marriage  was  again  admirably 
acted  la  at  night,  with  Mr.  W.  Farren,  as  Lord  0«icby,  which  cha- 
racter no  one  at  present  on  the  stage  can  rival  him  in.  Afterwards  a 
new  Musical  Farce,  in  one  act,  was  produced  under  the  title  of"  Birds 
without  Feathers'*  This  piece  appears  to  have  been  taken  from  the 
Farces,  called  The  Child  of  Mature  and  Sixteen  Years'  Labour  Lost. 
The  plot  is,  than  an  old  hermit  named  Philip,  (Mr.  Younger)  has 
long  lived  in  a  retired  cell,  hating  the  world,  and  particularly  women, 
because  Ids  wife  had  run  away  from  him.  His  son,  Colin,  (Mrs.  T. 
Hill)  has  been  brought  up  with  him  in  utter  ignorance,  and  he  is  par- 
ticularly anxious  that  he  should  never  see  any  woman  that  could  ii  - 
spire  him  with  love.  However,  another  old  gentleman,  Rinaldo,  (Mr. 
AY'flliams)  who  has  placed  his  daughter,  Eliza,  (Madame  Vestius) 
under  a  rigid,  man-hating  gouvenianto.  (Mrs.  0.  Jones)  induces  the 
liQrmit  to  visit  him  on  condition  that  his  (laughter  should  not  be  seen 
by  his  son.  The  young  couple,  notwithstanding  all  precautions  meet, 
and  under  mutual  astonishment  admire  each  other.  The  hermit,  jn 
order  to  check  his  son's  rising  feelings,  tells  him  the  fair  creature  is 
a  Bird,  which,  (although  surprised  at  its  not  having  any  feathers ,) 
he  cannot  help  loving,  and  the  old  gentlemen  at  length  fiuding  it  use- 
less to  oppose  nature,  unite  them.  The  music,  which  is  pretty,  we 
hear  is  composed  by  Mr.  Nathan,  and  ceitninly  merited  to  be  allied 
to  a  piece  of  more  solid  worth.  The  audience  were  divided  at  the 
conclusion,  although  the  majority  were  in  favor  of  its  repetition. — 
There  was  a  crowded  house. 

The  Fro z en  Lalce  was  followed  by  Brother  and  Sister,  in  which 
Miss  Paton  ants  and  sin?s  so  charmingly,  and  the  last  piece  was 
Where  shall  I  Dine  '!-. — The  house  was  rery  well  attended. 

Mr.  Mathews  concludes  his  engagement  for  the  season  this  even- 
ing. We  have  to  thank  him  for  many  merry  moments  ;  and  shall  be 
anxious  to  see  him  At  Home. 

A  gentleman  of  the  name  of  Suefiiehd  was  forcibly  rohbed  of  his 
gold  repeating  watch,  a  magnificent  chain  and  seals,  at  seven  o'clock 
iii  the  evening,  by  a  gang  of  pick-pockets,  at  the  time  he  was  paying 
his  money  at  the  pit  door  of  the  Has  market  Theatre.  A  powerful 
matt  faced  the  loser,  he  tore  open  the  buttons  of  his  pantaloons,  foi 
the  chain  had  been  tucked  into  the  fob.  Although  there  were  at  least 
thirty  persons  in  the  passage,  the  villain  escaped  with  his  booty;— 
watch  and  it?  appendages  were  worth  100  t'uixieu

It  was,  indeed,  admirably  acted,  and    received  with  great  applause. 
The  Irish  Tutor  afterwards  gave  Mr.  Connor  an  opportunity  of  dis- 
playing l»i3  humor  ;  and    The   Tale  of  Mystery  very  agreeably  con-

An  overflowing  house  marked  the  final  appearance  of  Mr.  Mathews 
here  this   season,  on   Saturday  night.     He  was   receive!!  throughout 
his  performances  with  shouts  of  laughter   and    applause.     We    tru;  r 
that  it  will  not   be   long  before   we  have   the    pleasure  of  seeing   1 
again.     Mr.  Broadhurst   takes  his  Benefit   to-triarrow  night,  when

Guinea1;  Intrigue,  and  Animal  Magnetism.  In  the  second  piece. 
Madame  Vestris  sang  three  songs  in  her  usual  style  of  elegance. — 
She  was  loudly  encored  in  singing  "  The  Dashing  IP" ,'ute  Serjeant," 
but  in  consequence  of  her  labouring  under  a  severe  hoarseness,  Mr. 
Harley  came  forward  to  apolgise  for  her. — The  house  was  full.

Cofcent  €arfcen  Zfyeattz. 

The  fine  tragedy  of  Hamlet  was  represented  here  last  night,  when 
Mr.  C.  Kemble  supported  the  arduous  character  of  the  Prince  of 
Denmark.  We  have  frequently  had  the  pleasure  of  noticing  this  per- 
formance ;  and  have  expressed  a  high  opinion  of  the  talent"  Mr.  C. 
Kemble  displayed  in  it.  Without  the  fire  of  Mr.  Kean,  or  the  phi- 
losophical manner  of  Mr.  Young,  Mr.  Kemble  exhibits  a  just  con- 
ception of  the  character,  pourlrayed  with  a  masterly  hand,  and  in- 
cluding many  touches  of  genius.  We  would  chiefly  instance  as  proofs 
of  these,  his  acting  in  the  first  scene  with  the  Ghost,  that  of  the 
Play,  and  the  chamber-scene  with  the  Queen.  The  interview  with 
Ophelia  was  also  performed  with  much  effect.  There  is  a  most  im- 
portant advantage  which  Mr.  Kemble  has  over  the  present  leading 
representatives  of  Hamlet ;  namely,  he  looks  the  character  moie 
perfectly  than  they  do.  He  carries  with  him  an  air  of  youth,  of  po» 
lished  frank  demeanour,  which  are  absolutely  necessary  to  the  true 
effect  expected  from  the  character.  We  have  also  to  remark,  that 
Mr.  Kemble  appears  to  have  rested  more  on  a  natural  representation 
of  Hamlet,  than  on  point-making,  as  it  is  termed.  He  is  highly 
commendable  for  thus  abandoning  all  the  trickery  of  the  profession, 
and  grounding  his  claims  for  approbation  on  the  plain  and  genuine 
unfolding  of  the  character  which  his  immortal  author  has  60  power- 
fully drawn.  The  frequent  applauses  of  pit  and  galleries  testified  the 
effect  of  his  natural  and  energetic  acting  ;  and  the  absorbed  attention 
of  the  boxes  proved  its  general  strength  and  merits.  The  other  cha- 
racters in  the  Play  were  well  sustained.  Ophelia,  on  this  occasion, 
was  under taken  by  Miss  Hammersley,  who  executed  the  part  in  an 
interesting  manner.  The  last  year's  Pantomime  followed,  and  much 
amosed  the  numerous  audience. 

The  entertainments  of  last  night  were  as  gratifying  to  a  crowded 
audience  as  most  of  those  presented  here  during  the  season  have 
been-  To-night,  the  present  campaign  terminates  ;  and  Mr.  Arnold 
has  every  reason,  we  believe,  to  congratulate  himself  on  the  eminent 
success  which  has  attended  his  exertions  to  amuse  and  gratify  the 
public. 

There  was  abundant  cause  of  mirth  at  this  cheerful  Theatre  last 
night — Sweethearts  and  Wives,  'Twould  Puzzle  a  Conjuror,  and 
Teazing  made  Easy,  followed  each  other  only  to  keep  up  the  smile 
the  preceding  piece  had  created, — There  was  a  good  house.

The  Comedy  of  Jo//w  Bull  was  acted  last  night.  The  character 
of  honest,  good-natured,  afflicted  Job  Thornherry,  was  filled  by  its 
old  representative,  Mr.  Fawcett,  whose  excellence  in  the  part  has 
frequently  been  the  theme  of  our  admiration.  There  is  not  a  per- 
former at  present  on  the  Metropolitan  Stage,  who  can  so  faithfully 
depict  homely  feeling,  blended  with  a  pleasant  humor.  He  received 
great  applause,  and,  indeed,  the  other  chief  characters  were  sup- 
ported in  a  manner  to  produce  frequent  marks  of  approbation,  "ihe 
Comedy  of  Charles  the  Second  followed  with  'excellent  effect. — There 
was  a  good  house. 

The  Hypocrite,  Killing  no  Murder,  and  Paul  and  Virginia,  were, 
of  course,  certain  of  attracting  a  full  house  here  last  night.— There 
are  three  highly  amusing  pieces  announced  for  this  evening. 


This  Theatre  last  night  closed  an  eminently  successful  season,  with 
the  performance  of  The  Marriage  of  Figaro,  and  Gordon  the  Gyp- 
sey,  and  a  variety  of  singing,  being  for  the  Benefit  of  Mr.  Broad- 
hurst. — The  house  was  crowded.  At  the  close  of  the  Opera,  Mr. 
Bartley  appeared  and  delivered  the  following  Farewell  Address  : 

Ladies  and  Gentlemen, 

As  the  performances  of  this  evening  will  terminate  our 
short  season,  it  becomes  my  duty  to  offer  the  usual  tribute  of  thanks 
for  the  patronage  wo  have  enjoyed.  On  no  former  occasion  have  I 
been  warranted  in  doing  this  in  terms  so  entirely  unqualified  as  on  the 
present.  The  great  and  various  exertions  which  have  been  made  to 
ensure  your  favor,  have  all  been  crowned  with  unprecedented  success  ; 
and  it  is  not  saying  too  much  to  assure  you  that  our  gratitude  is  com> 
mensurate  with  your  liberal  patronage. 

The  proprietor  hopes  that  he  does  'not  arrogate  to  himself  more 
merit  than  your  kindness  will  accord  to  him,  when  he  boasts  of  having 
been  the  first  to  bring  forward  the  masterly  composition  of  the  Frei- 
sckutz,     The  production  of  this  splendid  Opera  may  almost  be  con-

sidered  as  a  new  era  in  dramatic  music  ;  and  the  extraordinary  suc- 
cess which  has  attended  it — notwithstanding  the  enormous  expence 
incurred  by  its  performance,  and  the  other  novelties  which  have  been 
provided  for  your  entertainment,  has  convinced  him  that  even  in  his 
very  limited  season,  in  the  most  unfavorable  period  of  the  year,  a 
powerful  combination  of  excellence  and  talent  is  certaiu  to  receive  the 
gratifying  meed  of  your  protection  and  support. 

In  this  conviction  it  is  hardly  necessary  to  assure  you  that  the  next 
season  shall  be  marked  even  by  increased  energy  ;  and  by  new  efforts 
to  merit  your  approbation. 

It  now  only  remains  for  me,  Ladies  and  Gentlemen,  to  offer  you 
the  sincere  thanks  of  the  proprietor,  and  in  my  own  name,  and  that 
of  all  the  performers,  to  bid  you  respectfully  farewell. 

The  Surrey,  Olympic,  and  Sadler's  Wells,  were  excellently 
attended  last  night,  and  the  performances  at  each  house  were  received 
with  great  applause. 

Mr.  C.  Kemble  is  to  appear  as  Octavian,  in  the  Play  of  The 
Mountaineers,  on  Monday  next :  and  Miss  F.  H.  Kelly  is  to  repre- 
sent Floranthe.  Shakspeare's  Comedy  of  As  You  Like  It  is  pre- 
paring, with  additional  songs,  duets,  &c.  the  words  selected  from  his 
works,  and  the  music  composed  by  Mr.  H.  R.  Bishop.  They  are 
very  busy  at  Covent  Garden,  also,  with  Der  Frcischutz. 

Madame  Vestris  is  engaged  by  Mr.  Abbott  to  appear  at  the  Dub- 
lin Theatre,  i<u*  I6  nights.  Miss  Forde  is  likewise  engaged.  Mr. 
Burroughs;  of  the  Cobouig,  also  goes  to  that  theatre. 

Mr.  Glossop. — A  private  letter  from  Naples  says—"  The  contraet 
for  the  Royal  Theatres  has  been  taken  from  Mr.  Glossop,  and  given 
again  to  Barbaja,  the  former  Impresario.  Mr.  G.'s  engagement  will 
expire  at  Easter,  when  we  fear  he  will  find  his  pockets  lightened  of 
several  thousand  ducats.  He  is  now  at  Milan  directing  the  Grand 
Theatre  "  Delia  Scala,"  which,  as  I  have  before  informed  you,  he 
has  also  undertaken  ;  hitherto  he  has  given  satisfaction  there,  but  it 
is  to  be  doubted  whether  the  results  will  be  to  his  advantage.— Bri-

Ao.  891  Thursday,   Oct.  7,   1824.  Price  W. 


Cobem  garbcn  3TJ)catre* 

The  operatic  piece  of  Maid  Marian  was  pei  formed  last  night,  for 
what  reason  we  know  not,  except  to  display  the  humors  of  the  Church 
Militant,  so  admirably  personified  by  Mr.  C.  Kemble.  Miss  Tree, 
who  first  represented  the  fair  and  lively  Maid  Marian,  we  have  al- 
ready stated  was  taken  ill  on  her  late  provincial  tour,  from  over  ex- 
ertion ;  and  when  we  remembered  how  much  this  piece  was  indebted 
to  her  exertions,  we  could  hardly  conceive  it  prudent  to  act  it  -with- 
out her.  We  must  own,  after  last  night's  performance,  we  are  con- 
firmed in  this  opinion  ;  although  Miss  Hammersley,  who  took  the 
character,  represented  it  with  considerable  talent :  but  theie  is  a 
something  about  Miss  M.  Tree,  which  has  rendered  her  so  popular, 
that  there  is  hardly  a  young  lady  on  the  stage  that  can  vie  with  In  r 
in  that  respect,  and  it  is  not  to  be  expected  that  Miss  TrBe'b  recent 
impression  in  this  character  could  be  so  suddenly  swept  away,  as  to 
make  the  piece  attractive  with  the  name  of  one  of  less  standing  in. 
he  place  of  hers.  Mr.  W.  Farren  waddled  and  gabbled  through 
Baron  Fitzwater  in  his  usual  successful  manner  ;  he  is,  certainly,  an 
extraordinary  personage  in  his  way.  This  Mr.  W.  Farren  m  prf>- 
pita  personage  off  the  stage,  he  looks  like  a  beardless  youth  ;  and 
on  the  stage  he  actually  can  play  nothing  but  old  men  !  Amongst  the 
other  performers  in  this  Play,  Mr.  Pearman  is  distinguished  for  his 
tasteful  style  of  singing  and  attentive  acting.  We  take  the  liberty  of 
recommending  the  shelving  of  this  drama  until  Miss  M.  Tree's  re- 
covery. The  Farce  of  The  Poachers  followed— it  is  well  acted,  and 
therefore  takes  effect. 


Ji&p^niar&ct  €ljeattf& 

The  three  amusing  pieces  of  last  night,  were  'Twonld  Puzzle  a. 
Conjuror,  Sweethearts  and  J  Fives,  and  Teazing  made  Easy.  It  is 
scarcely  necessary  to  say  that  great  entertainment  was  derived  from 
these  by  a  numerous  audience.  It  has  been  asked  why  the  author  of 
Teazing  made  Easy,  Exit  by  Mistake,  &c.  &c.  does  not  continue  to 
write  fcr  the  stage  ?  The  answer  whieh  we  think  might  be  given,  is, 
that  these  dramatic  pursuits  were  the  chance  results  of  leisure  in  his 
younger  days,  and  having  superior  engagements  he  thinks  no  more  of 
them. 


tHE    THEATRICAL      OBSERVER. 


The  John  Bull  of  Sunday  last,  commences  its  theatrical  article 
in  the  following  manner : — 

"  THEATRES. 

"  Our  Correspondent,  whose  letter  upon  this  subject  we  received  as 
we  receive  every  thing  from  him — with  pleasure — understands  less  of 
us  than  we  imagined.  He  complains  of  the  rarity  of  oar  theatrical 
criticisms.  When  we  first  thought  of  establishing  this  Paper,  so  per- 
fectly uninteresting  and  insignificant  did  the  subject  appear  to  us, 
that  we  did  not  intend  ever  to  have  given  any  •  notices  of  the  drama.' 
We  altered  our  intention,  it  is  true ;  but  still  we  are  so  clearly  con- 
vinced of  the  total  indifference  with  which  plays,  play-writers,  players, 
and  play-houses,  are  considered,  if  ever  thought  of  in  good  society, 
that  it  is  merely  when  our  attention  is  called  to  the  subject,  and  some- 
body for  whose  opinion  we  have  a  respect,  makes  an  enjuiry  about 
them,  that  we  feel  inclined  to  occupy  any  space  of  our  Paper  with 
any  notice  of  them  whatever." 

Really,  Mr.  Bull,  this  is  indulging  in  a  splenetic  humor,  at  the 
expense  of  our  reputation  for  understanding,  to  a  degree  beyond  what 
we  should  have  thought  you  would  have  ventured.  What !  "  good 
society/',  then,  does  not  include  your  correspondent,  whom  you  hold 
in  such  high  esteem,  and  f  who  complains  of  the  rarity  of  your 
theatrical  criticisms  !"  "  Good  society"  never  wastes  a  thought  upon 
Shakspeare,  Congreve,  or  Sheridan  ! — "  Good  society"  never  va- 
lued the  talents  of  a  Garrick,  a  Kemble,  a  Siddons,  or  a  Jordan  ! 
The  magnificent  theatrical  establishments  of  Drury  Lane  and  Covent 
Garden,  which  are  specially  patronised  and  visited  by  the  King,  are 
never  heard  of  in  "  good  society  V  .That  is.  His  Majesiy,  accord- 
ing to  Bull,  is  one  of  the  vulgar  a  person  out  of  the  pale  of  u  good 
society!"  It  is  amusing  to  see  Mr.  Bull  supporting  his  assertion, 
tbat  nobody  in  "  good  society'  bestows  a  thought  on  theatrical  sub- 
jects, by  stating  that  he  never  pays  attention  to  them,  except  when 
his  friends  urge  him  to  do  so  !  This  is  complimenting  his  friends  in 
in  a  pretty  awkward  manner;  they  will,  no  doubt,  feel  inclined  to 
return  the  favor  in  the  same  way  on  the  first  opportunity,  by  de- 
claring that  persons  of  good  sense  never  pay  attention  to  balderdash 
about  whiggery,  but  when  their  friend  John  Bull,  devotes  his  time 
and  paper  to  it.

Cogent  <2arDcn  Cijcatro. 

Sheridan's  admirable  Comedy  of  The  School  for  Scandal,  was 
performed  last  night.  This  sterling  Comedy  has  rarely  been  better 
acted  than  it  was  on  this  occasion,  taking  it  altogether.  Mr.  XV.  Far- 
ren's  Sir  Peter  Teazle  is  certainly  a  distinguished  performance,  al- 
though it  has  not  the  richness  of  style  which  Mr.  Munden  gave  to  it. 
Mr.  Farren,  in  respect  of  figure,  has  the  advantage  of  the  retired 
veteran,  for  he  looks  more  or  the  formal,  cold  old  bachelor,  than  the 
Dthor :  but  he  does  not  give  such  an  interest  to  the  character  of  Sir 
Peter  as  Mr.  Munden  did.  The  latter  used  to  make  us  feel  the  knight 
a  good-natured,  warm-hearted  old  fellow,  who  although  a  little 
touchy,  always  seemed  desirous  speedily  to  remedy  the  effects  of  his 
passion  by  an  act  of  generosity.  Mr,  Farren  on  the  other  hand, 
makes  Sir  Peter  too  crabbed — he  has  not  good  humor  enough  at  his 
command  to  make  a  pleasing  impression  in  favor  of  the  character. — 
Still,  be  ably  depicts  its  other  leading  points,  and,  ki  particular,  ma- 
naged the  quarrel-scene  and  the  screen-scene  very  well. 

Miss  Chester  played  Lady  Teazle.  We  could  have  wished  her 
to  have  acted  it  a  little  less  boisterously — with  more  discrimination. 
Much  of  what  she  uttered  was  unintelligible  :  howcrer,  she  got  thro' 
the  character  very  respectably.  It  is  impossible  to  compare  her  with 
a  Miss  Farren,  or  a  Mrs.  Davison.  Lady  Teazle,  notwithstanding 
a  country  education,  is  to  be  presumed  from  the  nature  of  her  con- 
versation, a  young  woman  of  some  elegance  and  wit.  Miss  Chester 
does  not  sufficiently  impress  us  with  her  having  possession  of  those 
qualities.  Mr.  C.  Kemble  gave  to  the  gay  and  liberal  Charles  all  the 
pleasantry  and  manner  of  the  accomplished  man  of  fashion.  He  re- 
presents this  character  in  an  admirable  style  throughout  ;  there 
is  no  one  on  the  stage  that  approaches  his  excellence  in  it.  Joseph 
Surface  was  very  ably  represented  by  Mr.  Cooper,  who  appeared 
to  enter  fully  into  the  nature  of  the  part,  and  gave  a  perfect  picture 
of  the  hypocritical  man  of  the  world.  He  dressed  the  character  with 
great  propriety,  justly  deeming  Joseph  no  puritan  in  the  cut  of  his 
garments,  or  in  manner,  but  merely  a  man,  who,  though  moving  in 
fashionable  circles,  still  considered  it  his  interest  to  support,  in  op- 
position to  his  nature,  a  character  of  extreme  prudence,  by  way  of 
attaining  for  himself  an  advantageous  comparison  with  the  follies  of 
his  thoughtless  spendthrift  brother  Charles.      Mr.  Fawcett  sup- 


THE    THEATRICAL   OBSERVER; 


ported  his  old  character  of  Sir  Oliver  with  all  his  wonted  felicity.— 
We  know  no  one  that  could  do  it  better,  Mr.  Blanchard,  Mi*.  Jones, 
Mrs.  Gibbs,  and  Mrs.  Vining,  represented  the  scandalizing  coterie 
extremely  well.  Mr.  Yates's  Jloses  was  a  very  good  piece  of  acting. 
Miss  Love  was  a  little  out  of  her  element  as  JMaria.  We  thought 
sve  pereeired  that  arch  smile  of  hers  quivering  about  her  mouth  whilst 
she  was  endeavouring  to  look  sorrowful,  and  squeeze  out  a  tear. 

The  comic  piece  of  Charles  the  Second  followed,  in  which  Mr.  C. 
Kk:  :  le  acted  the  Merry  Monarch  with  great  humor.     Mr.  Jones,  as 

'yd  Rochester,  put  forth  his  pleasantry,  and  Mr.  Fawcett's  old 
ciearaan  was  admirably  clone — The  house  was  crowded  in  most  parts. 

The  Comedy  of  Rule  a  Wife  and  have  a  Wife  is  to  be  performed 
on  Tuesday  next,  and  on  Thursday,  the  celebrated  Der  Frcischutz 
is  to  be  brought  forward. 


lloh  Roy,  Intrigue,  and  "  Fish  out  of  Water"  were  represented 
last  night,  for  the  Benefit  of  Mr.  Melrose,  who  is  a  rising  singer.— 
Mr.  Bexxett  played  Rob  with  good  erTeet.  We  have  not  space  to 
state  particulars. — There  was  a  good  house. 


Mr.  Elliston  is  effecting  much  for  the  comfort  'of  the  visitors  to 
Dniry-lane  theatre.  In  addition  to  the  entire  removal  of  various 
nuisances  in  Vinegar-yard,  this  industrious  Manager  has  projected 
considerable  alterations  and  improvements  in  the  front  entrance,  by 
which  the  access  to  the  theatre  will  be  made  far  more  comfortable. 

A  new  Tragedy  was  read  in  the  Green-room  of  Covent-garden  thea- 
tre on  last  Friday,  previously  to  the  first  rehearsal  of  it,  in  the  pre- 
sence of  the  performers  who  are  to  support  the  several  characters. — 
The  piece  was  read  by  Mr.  C.  Kemble,  with  great  spirit,  and  is  said 
to  have  made  a  favorable  impression  on  the  theatrical  Circle. 

The  Universal  Gazette  of  Lyons  says,  that  the  acting  of  Talma 
attracts  to  the  great  theatre  there  a  truly  extraordinary  crowd  of  spec- 
tatort.  According  to  the  returns  made  to  the  authorities,  more  than 
10,000  strangers  has  arrived  is  Lyons  to  enjoy  the  display  of  the  ta- 
lents of  this  great  actor.  At  his  last  performance,  the  saloon  was 
filled  four  hours  before  the  rising  of  the  curtain,  and  the  receipts  ex- 
ceeded 7,000  francs.     British  Press. 

It  is  again  rumoured  that  the  English  Opera  House  will  be  appro- 
priated to  the  performance  of  Italian  Operas  during   the  whole  of  the 

ensuing  winter.

"  Nothing  extenuate  nor  set  down  aught  in  malice.'' 

No.  893  Saturday  Oct.  9,  1824.  Price  Id. 


Cotett  €ar&cn  Cfjcatre, 

That  extraordinary  Play,  called  Pride  shall  have  a  Fall,  was  acted 
last  night  for  the  second  time  this  season.  It  is  difficult  to  fix  the 
character  of  this  Comedv  : — it  is  full  of  dramatic  faults,  and  vet  has 
traits  of  genius  in  it.  Being  acted  with  great  spirit,  it  passess  off 
pleasantly,  when  we  resolve  not  to  use  our  critical  faculties.  The 
Reverend  George  Croly,  its  author,  has  not  obtained  by  it  any  high 
reputation  as  a  dramatic  author,  whilst  we  suspect  his  clerical  cha- 
racter has  suffered  not  a  little  by  devoting  his  time  and  attention  to 
this  pursuit.  Let  it  be  observed,  we  do  not  mean  to  say  that  writing 
for  the  stage  is  an  employment  unbecoming  a  good  member  of  society  , 
but  we  certainly  mean  to  assert,  that  it  is  one  which  a  clergyman  had 
better  leave  to  others  who  have  less  grave  duties  to  perform.  In  our, 
opinion,  the  man  who  has  devoted  himself  to  minister  to  the  officer, 
of  religion,  should  never  deviate  into  the  regions  of  light  imagination, 
with  no  other  aim  than  to  create  mirth  and  profit  by  his  comic  in- 
vention. His  mind  must  be  indifferently  prepared  for  the  many  so- 
lemn duties  of  a  clergyman,  when  rising  from  the  concatenation  of 
his  ludicrous  scenes.  Let  us  just  suppose  when  the  Reverend  Gen= 
tlcman  has  completed  the  following  stanza  in  his  Play— - 

"  For  your  bachelor's  happy, 
And  o'er  his  brown  nappy 
He'll  drink  down  the  sun  and  the  moon,  bravo  boys  ;" 

the  Parish  Clerk  taps  at  his  closet-door,  with  "  Sir — sir-— Mr.  Croly  ! 
the  body  waits."  Up  jumps  our  parson,  and  having  hastily  slipped 
on  his  canonicals,  Hies  to  commit  "  dust  to  dust."  Which,  when 
done,  he  hastens  back  to  his  temple  of  the  muses,  and  goes  on — 

"  But  the  husband's  a  wretch, 

That  longs  for  Jack  Ketch, 
And  a  rope's  end  can't  ease  him  too  soon,  brave  boys  ; 
And  a  rope's  end  can't  ease  him  too  soon  !" 

Then  let  us  imagine  the  Reverend  Gentleman  called  to  pi  ay  at  the 
bed  of  sickness — how  provoking  ! — just  as  he  is  consuming  his  mid- 
night oil  over  the  following  : — 

"Tor.  Why  you  scoundrels,  you  renegadoes,  you  dogs  in  office— 
what's  this  for  ?  To  be  dragged  out  of  my  first  sleep  in  my  dungeon, 
to  look  in  the  faces  of  such  a  confoundedly  ugly  set  of  cannibals/' 


THE   THEATRICAL   OBSERVER 


And,  then,  on  his  return  from  preparing  a  poor  soul  for  "  another 
and  a  better  world" — he  sets  to  work  again  ;  and  clearing  away  his 
holy  thoughts,  proceeds  through  his  work  inspired  by  the  comic  muse. 

*'  Major.  A  mighty  handsome  idea,  by  the  glory  of  the  Twentieth. 

"  Col.  Sirrah  !  you  must  see  that  we  arc  officers.     Take  care. 

"  Tor.  Officers  ! — aye,  sheriff's  officers.  Honest  housekeepers,  with 
very  rascally  countenances. 

"  Cor.  Muffs  and  meerschaums  ! — Very  impudently  conjectured. 

"  Tor.  Well  then,  parish  officers !  Hunters  of  brats,  beggars, 
and  light  bread. 

"  JIIuj.  (laughing) — Another  guess  for  your  life. 

'*  Col.  Insolence !  Sirrah,  wo  are  in  His  Majesty's  service. 

"  Tor.  Oh !  I  understand — Custom-house  Officers.  Tubs,  tobacco, 
and  thermometers." 

This  is,  surely,  all  very  much  out  of  character ;  and,  therefore, 
we  conceive  Mr.  Croly  should  either  abandon  the  church  or  the 
stage. — There  were  many  persons  of  fashion  in  the  house. 


Sweethearts  and  Wives,  the  new  Farce,  and  Paul  and  Virginia, 
were  performed  last  night  with  all  their  former  success. — The  theatre 
was  well  attendel. 


Surrey.— This  Theatre  has  been  very  well  attended  this  week,  to 
see  the  new  melo-drama  of  The  Kwula ;  or,  the  Indian  Pirate's 
Vessel,  and  the  devilish  piece  of  Der  Freischutz. 

Olympic « — The  performances  at  this  beautiful  little  honse  are  cal- 
culated to  please  in  the  higltest  degree.  The  acting  of  Messrs.  Vi- 
ning,  Campbell,  Buckingham,"  Miss  P.  Glover,  and  Miss  Stuart, 
is  excellent. 

Sadler's  Wells.-— The  melo-drama  of  Von  Orenburg,  the  Hun- 
garian Outlaw,  continues. tb  attract  in  no  common  degree. — Messrs. 
Mortimer,  Vale,  Bkyant,  Sirs.  Wilkinson,  &c.  perform  their  parts 
with  great  success. 

Mr.  Wm.  Macready  is  to  make  his  appearance  at  the  opening  of 
the  Sheffield  Theatre  on  the  25th  instant. 

We  are  sorry  to  state  that  Mrs.  Yates,  late  Miss  Brunton,  is 
much  indisposed  at  Cheltenham  ;  her  name  was  announced  for  an  ap- 
pearance at  the  Brighton  Theatre,  where  she  was  engaged  for  a  week, 
on  Monday  last,  but  her  illness  prevented  her  fulfilling  her  engage- 
ment.— British  Prt'ss.

Farquhar's  lively  Comedy  of  The  Inconstant  was  acted  on  Sa- 
turday night  for  the  second  time  this  season.  It  is  a  Play  that  re- 
quires considerable  talent  in  the  representatives  of  the  leading  cha- 
racters to  render  them  in  any  degree  effective.  The  parts  of  Old  and 
Young  Mirabel,  of  Durutete,  of  Bizarre,  and  of  Oriana,  would  be 
lost  in  the  hands  of  second-rate  actors.  There  is  so  much  bye-play 
necessary  that  an  indirl'erent  conception  of  the  characters,  and  the 
least  defect  in  the  nlling-up,  in  many  instances  would,  we  think,  if 
badly  acted,  create  much  disgust.  The  ease  and  elegance  of  manner 
with  which  Mr.  C.  Kemble  exhibits  the  gaiety  and  carelessness  of  /he 
inconstant  lover  of  Oriana,  gives  ns  a  perfect  idea  of  the  character, 
without  offending  in  any  way  our  sense  of  propriety.  His  points  arc 
made  as  if  they  arose  naturally,  without  the  least  indication  of  their 
being  in,  fact  the  result  of  art.  It  is  this  power  which  constitutes  a 
great  actor  ;  and  he  who  is  unable  to  attain  it,  had  better  give  up 
the  profession  if  he  cannot  endure  a  second-rate  reputation.  Mr.  W. 
Farren's  Old  Mirabel  is  a  very  good  performance.  Durutete,  by 
Mr,  Jones,  was  humorously  acted  :  although  it  is  a  hard  task  for  this 
gentleman  to  appear  awkward  or  very  diffident.  Indeed,  be  appeared 
rather  to  assume  than  be  really  the  unpractised  character  in  society 
the  author  jhas  drawn.  The  scone  between  him  and  Mrs.  Chatter- 
ley,  who  represented  Bizarre  admirably,  where  she  discovers  and 
plagues  him,  was,  however,  not  badly  done,  and  created  much  mirth. 
Yet,  his  manner  and  his  bad  dancing  ill-concealed  that  he  could  both 
walk,  talk,  and  dance  in  a  superior  style.  We  must  not  omit  to  no- 
tice the  scene  between  Bizarre  and  Young  *M\rabel,  where  he  defeats 
the  lady's  scolding  intentions  with  the  aid  of  Virgil.  Mrs.  Chatter- 
ley  and  Mr.  C.  Kemble  played  this  with  uncommon  spirit  and  effect, 
and  were  loudly  applauded.  The  vexation  and  passion  of  the  former, 
and  the  ironical  coolness  of  the  latter,  were  admirable  efforts  of  the 
art.  Wc  ought  also,  particularly,  to  remark  on  the  acting  of  Mr. 
Kemble  in  the  scene  with  the  ruffians,  which  was  finely  done.  We 
think  Miss  Joxes  a  very  clever  lady  ;  and  she  did  Oriana  in  many 
respects  well ;  yet  it  is  not  a  character  that  suits  her  talent  so  well  as 
some  others  of  a  more  lively  nature.  Miss  Foote  or  Miss  S.  Booth 
were  well  calculated  for  this  part,  which  requires  a  quiet,  interesting 
solicitude  of  manner,  to  give  it  full  effect.    Mr.  Baker  represented 


THE   THEATRICAL   OBSERVER: 


Dugard  very  appropriately  ;  but  might  we  suggest  to  him,  that  were 
he  not  to  suspend  his  arms  with  the  back  of  his  hands  foremost,  he 
would  appear  much  more  graceful  on  the  stage.  This  Comedy,  al- 
together, was  so  effective,  that  it  is  to  be  repeated  to-morrow  night. 

The  Irish  Tutor,  and  The  Tale  of  Mystery t  followed,  and  gave 
the  highest  satisfaction. 

Mr.  C.  Kemble  plays  Octavian  this  evening, 

Mr.  Young  is  engaged  here,  and  will  make  his  first  appearance  on 
Wednesday  next,  in  Sir  Pertindz  MdcBycophant ,  in  Macklin's  Co- 
medy of  The  Man  of  the  fVbrld. 


Rob  Roy  was  repeated  here  on  Saturday  night.  On  this  occasion 
Mr.  Cooper  acted  Rob,  and  with  much  effect.  His  vigorous  style  is 
well  suited  to  this  energetic  character.  Mr.  Melrose  sang  with  taste 
in  Francis  Osbaldistone,  and  Mr.  Liston's  Baillie  Jarvie,  was,  as 
usual,  highly  amusing.  Madame  Veitris  makes  a  delightful  Diana 
Vernon.  Mrs.  Glover  was  not  a  little  out  of  her  proper  line  in 
Helen  Macgregor.  The  new  Farce  and  Intrigue,  were  afterwards 
excellently  acted. 

Mr.  Dowton  appears  here  to-morrow  night,  as  Sir  John  Falstqff, 
for  the  Benefit  of  Madame  Vestris. 

Miss  Kelly  is  engaged  here,  and  will  make  her  first  appearance 
on  Saturday  next. 

The  Adelphi  Theatre  Opens  on  Thursday  next,  With  a  new  grand 
Spectacle. 

The  opening  of  Drury  Lane  theatre  is  postponed  to  the  23d  or  25th 
of  this  month,  on  which  occasion  a  magnificent  spectacle,  founded  on 
the  tale  of  the  Enchanted  Horse,  from  the  Arabian  Night's  Enter- 
iainmmts,  will  be  produced,  supported  by  Due  row  and  his  equestrian 
troop. 

Mrs.  W.  West  has  declinrd  renewing  her  engagement  at  Drury  Lane 
in  consequence  of  her  husband's  services  having  been  rejected.  She 
succeeds  Miss  Chester  at  the  Haymarket  Theatre,  where  she  is  an- 
nounced to  appear  this  Evening  as  JLydia  Languish.

"  Nothing  extenuate  nor  set  down  aught  in  malice." 

Tuesday ',   Oct  12,  1824*  Price  Id. 


Cotant  €atDca  3H)e&tte. 

Colman's  Play  of  Sfl&e  Mountaineers  was  represented  last  night. — 
This  drama,  with  its  twofold  plot,  is  a  compound  of  insipidity  and 
florid  dialogue.  The  story  of  Zoraydas  abandonment  of  her  father, 
(lie  moor  Bulcazim  Muleij,  to  embrace  Christianity  in  the  person  of 
a  Spanish  gallant,  is  extremely  weak,  and  has  no  portion  of  interest 
in  it :  and  the  loves  of  Agnes  and  Sadi  is  common-place.  The  ro- 
mance of  Octavian  the  deranged  wanderer  of  the  Cordilleras,  is  taken 
from  the  history  of  Don  Quixotic,  and  has  a  considerable  share  of 
interest. about  it ;  but.  then,  it  is  of  such  short  duration — co  broken  in 
upon  by  the  Moorish  bombast,  and  the  silly  courting-scenes  of  Sadi 
and  Jfgnes,  that  it  is  greatly  weakened.  In  short,  we  wade  through 
a  vast  deal  of  tiresome  matter  in  order  to  reach  the  good  stuff,  Tlu 
only  striking  character  on  which  the  imagination  can  be  at  all  fixed, 
is  that  of  Octavian.  This  was  admirably  acted  by  Mr.  C.  Kemblle, 
who  powerfully  depicted  the  unseated  reason,  and  overwhelming  pas- 
sion of  love,  of  the  unhappy  hero.  Nothing  could  surpass  the  eiTect  of 
the  following  speech  : — 

"  Oct.  Thou  hast  shot  lightning  through  me  ! — 
Art  thou—stay  i 

That  sound  was  thrilling  music  !  0  Floranthe  ! 
I  thought  not  e'en  the  magic  of  thy  name 
Could  make  a  heart,  so  long  benumb'd  with  misery, 
Leap  as  'twould  burst  its  prison.- — Do  not  mock  me  ; 
If  thou  dost  juggle,  now,  I'll  tear  thee — Hold  ! 
Aye,  I  remember  ; — and  as  I  peruse  thee, 
Past  times  rush  in  upon  me,  with  thy  face  ; 
And  many  a  thought  of  happiness,  gone  by, 
Doth  flash  across  my  brain.     Let  me  not  wander. 
Give  me  thy  band,  1  toque. — I  do  know  thy  errand  , 
And  'tis  of  import,  when  thou  journey'st,  thus. 
The  trackless  desart  to  seek  sorrow  out. 
Thou  comest  to  tell  me.  my  Floranthe's  dead  : — 
But  we  will  meet  again,  sweet ! — I  will  back, 
With  thee,  old  honesty  ;  and  lay  me  down, 
Heart-broke  at  last,  beside  her  shrouded  corse, 
Ki;i&  her  cold  cheek,  then  fly  to  her  in  heaven  !" 


THE    THEATRICAL    OBSERVER: 


The  interview  with  Florantke  wa9  equally  effective,  and  the  feel- 
ings of  the  audience  were  in  many  instances  affected  to  tears  when  he 
exclaimed — 

"  Oct.  What  art  thou  ? — speak that  face — yet  this  attire — 

Floranthc  ! — No — it  cannot — Oh  ;  good  heaven  !j 
V«x  not  a  poor  weak  creature  thus  !  Floranthe  ? 
How  my  sight  thickens — Speak — *' 

"  Flor.  Octavian  !" 

"  Oct.  That  voice  ! — It  is — So  long  too — Let  me  clasp  thee — H 

"  (Runs  to  meet  her — staggers — and  falls  on  his  face)" 

Miss  F.  H.  Kelly,  who  acted  Floranthe  in  the  sweetest  manner, 
assisted  to  render  this  seene  so  affecting.  The  other  characters  were 
pretty  well  supported.  Miss  Lacy,  who  looked  very  graceful  as 
Zoruyda,  and  Miss  Love,  Mr.  Dtruset,  Mr.  Connor,  and  Mr. 
Blanchard,  in  particular,  received  marks  of  favor  from  a  rather  nu- 
merous audience. 


This  lively  theatre  gave  us  The  Rivals,  last  night,  in  which  the 
novelty  was  Mrs.  W.  West's  first  appearance  here,  in  the  character 
of  Lydia  Languish.  She  was  received  with  the  most  animated  ap- 
plause, which  this  amiable  lady,  and  admirable  actress  amply  me- 
rits. The  other  pieces  were  Intrigue  and  Jlnimal  Magnetism,  which 
kept  the  audience  in  loud  laughter. 

Sadler's  Wells — The  season  here  is  drawing  very  near  to  a  close, 
having  received  during  its  present  campaign  that  patronage  and  sup- 
port the  excellence  of  the  performances  generally  entitled  it  to.  To- 
morrow evening  we  observe  is  devoted  to  the  Benefit  of  Mr.  J.  S. 
Grimaldi,  and  from  the  strength  and  combination  of  talent  contained 
in  his  bill  of  fare,  we  have  no  doubt  but  a  bumper  will  be  the  result. 
We  have  also  witnessed  a  full  announcement  for  Monday  next,  for  the 
Benefit  of  the  indefatigable  stage-manager,  Mr.  Gallott,  whose  ex- 
ertions throughout  the  season  in  the  promotion  of  amusement  for  the 
public,  is  deserving  every  support.  Mr.  Dayus,  the  worthy  treasurer, 
also  takes  his  Benefit  on  the  same  evening,  and,  if  attention  and  po- 
liteness to  the  frequenters  of  Sadler's  Wells,  are  claims  on  their  pa- 
tronage, there  is  no  doubt  but  an  overflow  will  be  his  reward.

The  excellent  manner  in  whfch  The  Inconstant  has  been  acted  here 
this  season,  has  drawn  much  attention,  and  a  numerous  audience  has' 
marked  its  performances  General  admiration  Us  bestowed  on  Mr.  C*

talents  still  more  forward  by  the  most  spirited  exertions.  This  Thea- 
tre having  been  assailed  by  a  lamentable  chancery  suit,  a  sort  of  cloud 
is  thought  to  envelope  it  ;  and  Mr.  Kemble  and  the  other  Managers 
may  feel,  under  the  circumstances,  a  generous  ardour  to  clear  away 
the  mists  of  this  legal  prejudice,  and  by  every  exertion  to  bring  forth 
their  splendid  Establishment  triumphantly  through  the  obscuring  fogs 
of  Lincoln's-Jnn  Hall. 

The  theatrical  critic  in  last  night's  Globe  and  Traveller,  (which  by 
the  bye  is  an  amusing  Paper)  speaking  of  the  performance  of  The 
Mountaineers,  at  Covent  Garden  Theatre,  says — 4t  Sadi  retired  from 
the  stage  with  Jack  Bannister,  and  [Mr.  Duruset,  though  he  sang 
the  songs  respectably,  has  not  succeeded  in  inducing  him  to  return." 
We  know  that  this  character  is  out  of  Mr.  Duruset's  line,  but  tie 
Globe  and  Traveller  critic,  we  presume,  has  'never  seen  Mr.  Ha r ley 
in  the  part.  We  can  assure  him  that  that  gentleman  gives  us  Sadi  as 
humorously  as  *  Jack  Bannister,"  Talking  of  "  Jack  Bannister," 
(whom  the  play-goers  of  a  few  years  back  will  never  forget) — we 
had  some  time  ago  the  pleasure  of  seeing  him  quite  well,  except  of 
that  tenderness  of  toe  which  the  villainous  gout  has  inflicted  on  him. 
Mr.  Bannister  after  a  brilliant  theatrical  career,  wisely  retired  into 
private  life  with  ample  means,  and  a  happy  memory  of  him  impressed 
on  the  public  mind.  He  still,  we  hear,  lives  loving  and  beloved  in 
the  bosom  of  his  friends  and  family  ;  giving  an  additional  proof  that 
the  stage  is,  no  more  than  other  pursuits  of  life,  a  contaminator  of 
the  heart  or  of  the  mind,  when  there  is  an  original  rectitude  of  feeling 
and  principle. 


Madame  Vestris  had  her  Benefit  here  last  night  ;  and  it  was  a 
very  good  one.  Mr.  Dowton  appeared  on  the  occasion  as  Sir  John 
Falstaff,  in  The  Merry  Wives  of  Windsor,  and  was  received  with 
shouts  of  applause. 


THE   THEATRICAL    OBSERVER. 


Adhlphi  Theatre. — During  the  recess  this  Theatre  has  undergone 
considerable  alterations  and  improvements.  A  dress-circle  has  been 
formed,  and  the  whole  has  been  entirely  re-decorated  in  rather  a  no- 
vel and  tasteful  manner  ;  the  gilt  ornaments  to  the  front  of  the  boxes 
are  laid  on  a  ground  composed  of  rose-colour  and  white  stripes,  giving 
it  a  pleasing  appearance  of  lightness  and  elegance.  The  private  boxes 
are  lined  with  rich  crimson  flock  paper,  with  silk  draperies  to  cor- 
respond. The  proscenium  gives  the  appearance  of  a  variegated  fan, 
most  richly  embossed,  with  burnished  gold)  and  the  scenery  is  equally 
superb.  The  orchestra  has  been  enlarged,  sufficiently  to  contain  a 
.Band  of  upwards  of  forty  performers,  it  being  the  intention  of  the 
.proprietors  to  open  with  a  new  musical  piece,  from  which  they  have 
great  expectations,  and  on. which  no  expense  hi\s  been  spared. 

Surrey. — Last  night  this  theatre  was  the  scene  of  contention  be- 
tween the  management  and  the  audience,  owing  to  the  non-appearance 
of  Mon-s.  Cline,  the  French  Hercules,  who  was  announced  in  the  bills 
to  display  his  wonderful  powers  of  balancing.  While  the  band  were 
plaving  the  Overture  to  Der  Freisckntz,  (the  afterpiece)  the  first  in- 
dications of  a,  storm  were  perceptible,  which  on  the  rising  of  the 
curtain,  burst  forth'  with  tremendous  fury.  It  appeared  from  the 
statement  of  the  Manager,  who  then  came  forwaad,  that  Mr.  Cline 
was  engaged  by  .Mr.  Williams  only,  for  his  Benefit  the  preceding 
evening,  and  he  hoped  therefore  that  the  entertainments  might  bo 
'permitted  to  proceed.  The  uproar  encreased — the  Manager  re- 
appeared,and  proposed  that  M.  Cline  should  go  through  his  perform- 
ances— this  produced  tranquility  ;  but  eventually  it  was  found  M. 
Cline  demanded  payment  instanter — this  was  rejected  by  the  Mana- 
ger, who  again  appealed— uproar  recommenced  ;  huh  the  majority 
was  in. favor  of  the  Manager,  and  the  piece  then  proceeded. 

Miss  Foote. — It  would  appear  that  this  lady  has  been  not  very  well 
treated  by  a  Mr.  Haines,  a  wealthy  young  man,  who,  it  is  said,  has 
twice  appointed  a  time  for  their  nuptials,  and  as  often,  on  some  fri- 
volous pretence,  disappointed  her.  We  have  heard  many  stoiies  of 
this  business,  which  may  or  may  not  be  true.  Amongst  them,  that 
the  gentleman  asserted  he  never  in  his  sober  senses  dreamt  of  making 
her  his  wife — that  several  thousand  pounds  had  been  got  out  of  him 
by  the  lady's  father  ;  and  that,  in  short,  he  was  sick  and  tired  of  the 
whole  business,  and  was  compelled  to  shut  his  doors  against  all  her 
family,  who  besieged  him  with  most,  unwearied  industry.  Kcport  says 
Miss  1'oote  is  to  bring  the  matter  before  a  Jury.

AND 

Daily  Bills  of  the  Play. 

**  Nothing  extenuate  nor  set  down  aught  in  malice." 

JVo.  897  Thursday,  Oct  14,  1824.  Price  Id. 

Cedent  <2ai*&en  Cljcatre. 

That  eminent  actor,  Mr.  Young,  made  his  first  appearance  for  the 
season  last  night,  as  Sir  Pertinaz  Jllacsycophant.  One  might  have 
supposed  that  he  would  have  selected  a  tragic  character  on  the  occasion, 
but,  the  fact  is,  that  his  talent  for  a  certain  line  in  comedy  lias  fully 
equalled,  if  not  surpassed,  his  qualifications  fo»-  tragedy.  Mr.  Young 
is  the  finest  declaimer  on  the  stage  ;  he  possesses  a  naanly  and  im- 
posing person  and  manner  ;  his  judgment  is  excellent,  and  he  is  dis- 
tinguished for  taste.  He,  therefore,  always  gives  peculiar  force  to 
eneigetic  parts,  and  marks  the  niceties  of  character  with  much  effect. 
Besides,  he  has  a  fine  satirical  turn  of  humor,  which  in  Sir  Pertinaos 
is  frequently  called  forth  with  great  felicity.  Mr.  Young,  on  his  voice 
being  heard  without,  was  greeted  with  a  very  cordial  welcome.  He 
acted  Sir  Pertinaco,  throughout,  in  an  admirable  manner,  and  with 
almost  all  the  perfection  of  dialect  which  a  native  of  Scotia  might  be 
expected  to  exhibit.  Mr.  Cooper  played  Egerion  in  a  very  gentle- 
manly style  ;  and  gave  every  importance  to  the  character  which  it  is 
susceptible  of.  The  hady  Rodolpha  Lumbercourt  of  Mrs.  Chatter- 
ley  is  clever,  but  rather  laboured  in  some  parts.  Mr.  Bartley 
looked  and  acted  the  von  vivant,  careless  English  nobleman  extremely 
well.  Mr.  Mason  represented  Sidney. — Still,  do  we  intreat  of  this 
young  gentleman  to  get  rid  of  that  formal,  important  air  which  he 
continually  assumes.  He  acts  every  thing  as  if  it  was  a  grand,  first- 
rate  tragic  character  he  had  in  hand;  and  thus,  really,  brings  on 
himself  much  harsh  ridicule.  Why  will  he  not  resolve  hir.isielf  into 
Ms  character  ? — Why  not  follow  nature?  He  is  possessed  of  talent ; 
but  we  are  sure  he  never  will  appear  to  advantage  in  any  character 
which  requires  an  unbending  of  the  whole  manner  :  his  voice  also  is 
much  against  him  ;  but,  we  think,  notwithstanding  our  observations, 
that  there  is  considerable  improvement  this  season  in  his  acting. 


The  Comedy  of  The  Road  to  \ 

The  character  of  Old  JJornion  was  supported   b>    Mr    >. 
It  was  an  able  performance,  but  very  unlike  that  of  our  retired  fa- 
vorite Mr.  Mcnden,  in  the  same  part,  which  was  always  exclusively 
his  own.     Mr,  Farren  wants  ilie  power  of  moving  us  with  paternal

affection,  breaking  out  through  offended  feeling  at  the  extravagancies 
of  his  darling  son.  With  this  defect,  it  cannot  be  said  to  have  filled 
the  character  appropriately  ;  although  the  rity  of  an  audience 

who  are  no  critics^  will,  no:  doubt,  acted  the   part   very 

finely. 

Mrs.  Glover  appeared  as  the  Widow  Warren,  for  the  first  time. 
Since  the.  days  of  Mrs.  Mattocks,  the  original  Widow,  we  do  not  re- 
collect to  have  seen  this  character  so  much  to  our  liking.  Mrs.  West, 
as  Sophia,  was  very  interesting.  Mr.  Viking's  Young  Dornton  is  a 
very  spirited  piece  of  acting,  and  does  him  great  credit.  Mr.  Har- 
ley's  Goldfinch  was  very  good  and  true  to  nature.  The  whole  Play 
was  well  performed,  and  gave  gr#at  satisfaction. 


(From  a  Correspondent.) 

English  Opera-House. — The  performances  at  this  Theatre,  on 
Monday  evening,  for  the  Benefit  of  the  Philantrophlc  Society,  was 
very  fashionably  attended.  The  Play  of  The  Rivals  was  very  respect- 
ably performed.  Sir  Anthony  Absolute  was  spirited,  and  Mr.  JAMes 
had  evidently  taken  great  pains  with  the  part.  Captain  Absolute  was 
performed  by  Mr.  Harrold  ;  we  remember  seeing  this  gentleman  in 
subordinate  characters  at  Drury  Lane  Theatre  last  season,  and  we 
were  much  surprised  at  witnessing  his  spirited  represensation  of  the 
Captain  ;  he  was  easy,  bold,  and  elegant,  and  was  uncommonly  well 
drsssed.  Faulkland  was  performed  in  a  ve#y  gentlemanly  manner  by 
Mr.  Holland.  Bob  Acres  was  very  entertaining  in  the  last  scene  ; 
he  evidently  did  not  understand  the  earlier  ones ;  he  certainly  is  a 
most  industrious  collector  of  *  gag."  But  what  shall  we  say  of 
David,  he  was  the  best  acted  character  in  the  Play,  and  we  only  re- 
gretted we  did  not  see  more  of  him.— -This  gentleman  certainly  pos- 
sesses very  great  talent.  The  ladies  supported  their  characters  with 
very  great  ability.     The  evening's  entertainment  was  much  too  long. 

«*■  

Adelphi  Theatre. — The  spirited  and  highly  successful  proprietors 
of  this  establishment,  commence  their  winter  career  this  evening, 
with  a  new  melo-drama  of  the  Germ&n  school.  We  have  heard  the 
scenery,  dresses,  &c.  spoken  of  in  the  highest  terms  of  approbation. 
The  bills  too  announce,  as  we  stated  yesterday,  an  increase  of  num- 
bers in  the  vocal  and  instrumental  departments,  worthy  of  either  of 
the  great  houses.  Considerable  alterations  have  been  effected  in  va- 
rious parts  of  the  Theatre,  with  a  view  to  the  comfort  of  the  au- 
dience. The  salle  has  been  re-decorated  in  a  most  pleasing  and  ele- 
gant style  of  novelty.— We  heartily  wish  a  continuation  of  their  usual 
prosperity.

Cotoent  <£attscn  €!jeatm  ,  . 

The  great  success  which  the  celebrated  piece  of  Der  Freischutz^ 
met  with  at  the  English  Opera-House,  had  induced  the  managers  of 
this  theatre  to  produce  it  in  the  roost  perfect  manner.  Accordingly, 
a  new  translation  and  adaptation  of  it  was  made,  and  the  Opera  was 
presented  last  night  for  the  first  time,  At  an  early  hour  the  house 
was  crowded  in  every  part ;  and  every  one  seemed  anxious  to  hear  the 
hcautifiil  music  of  Weber  executed  in  one  of  the  finest  theatres  in 
the  world.  The  orchestra  had  been  enlarged  for  the  occasion,  and 
many  persons  added  to  the  choir  of  the  establishment.  -All  these 
preparations,  and  all  the  eager  curiosity  of  the  public,  happily  proved 
not  to  have  been  thrown  away.  Never  was  the  effect  of  beautiful  and 
grand  music  more  delightfully  produced  than  in  numerous  instances  on 
this  occasion.  The  overture*  was  rapturously  encored,  and  so  was  the 
following  famous  hunting-chorus  at  the  end  of  the  piece  : — 

What  joys  are  the  life  of  a  hunter  surrounding, 
For  whom  foams  so  richly  the  cup  of  delight ! 
With  rifle  and  horn,  through  the  broad  forest  bounding, 
Or  stretch'd  in  its  shade,  by  the  streamlet  so  bright, 
How  glorious  to  see  the  fleet  stag  vainly  flying, 
The  hound  in  the  greenwood,  the  hawk  in  the  air  : 
The  pastime  of  princes;  all  others  outvying, 
No  sport  upon  earth  with  the  chase  can  compare. 
Yoho,  tra  la  la  !  &c. 

Not  even  with  day  is  the  hunter's  sport  ended— 
The  midnight  to  him  is  as  dear  as  the  noon  ; 
For  when  the  bright  sun  in  the  west  has  descended, 
To  light  him  uprises  his  lady  the  moon  ; 
By  her  yellow  beam  led,  through  the  deepest  glens  hieing, 
The  wolf  and  the  wild  boar  he  tracks  to  the  lair  , 
The  pastime  of  princes,  all  others  outvying, 
No  sport  upon  earth  with  the  chase  can  compare. 
Yoho,  tra  la  la  !  &c. 

The  singing  by  Miss  Paton,  as  Bertha,  was  excellent  :  tie  long 
scena  in  the  second  act,  was  given  by  her  with  a  power,  a  sweetness, 
and  brilliancy  of  tone,  that  commanded  the  admiration  and  loud  ap- 
plauses of  the  whole  audience.     Miss  Love,  as  Lina,  also  sang  with

her  accustomed  talent;  and  Mr.  Pearman,  as  fVilhelm,  gave  liis 
songs  with  all  the  taste  for  which  he  is  so  conspicuous.  Mr.  Isaacs 
sang  the  Bacchanalian  song  very  well,  and  was  encored  amidst  some 
opposition.  The  chorusses  were  excellently  performed  ;  and  the  whole 
was  a  vocal  and  instrumental  treat  of  the  finest  kind.  With  respect 
to  the  drama  itself ;  we  think  the  present  version  lias  more  the  air 
and  effect  of  opera  than  the  piece  produced  at  the  English  Opera- 
Housc  ;  which  latter  was  more  melo-dramatic  in  its  arrangement. — 
The  most  material  alteration  in  the  plot  of  the  present  piece,  is,  that 
the  character  named  Killian  is  made  the  medium  Caspar  employs  in 
assisting  to  cast  the  balls,  and  to  fire  the  seventh  bullet,  which  he 
hopes  the  daemon  will  direct  to  the  heart  that  repelled  him  and  beats 
for  JFilhelm — the  heart  of  Bertha.  Altogether,  the  Der  Freischutz 
of  this  theatre  is  a  most  interesting  piece  The  famous  Incantation- 
scene  was  produced  with  a  terrific  effect  surpassing  conception  :  it  is 
impossible  to  convey  an  idea  of  this  scene  ;  it  represented  the  gloom 
of  midnight  hanging  over  the  Wolf's  Glen — the  moon  eclipsed — the 
magic  circle  formed — the  wind's  hollow  sound  breathing  through  the 
forest — the  spirit,  invoked,  appealing  in  the  opening  rock  enveloped 
in  flames — the  casting  of  each  buliet,  attended  by  the  chorus-howling 
of  daemons  and  noises  resembling  the  discharge  of  artillery  and  fire- 
arms— the  skeleton  chase  in  the  sky — the  assemblage  of  frightful 
monsters  creeping  and  in  the  air — a  chariot  of  fire  bearing  death  a 
skeleton  of  flame — nature  herself  overthrown,  amidst  the  war  of  ele- 
ments, until  the  whole  presented  immeasurable  discord,  and  all  the 
burning  glory  of  the  destroying  dcemon  !  This  scene  closed  amidst 
the  cheers  of  the  audience  ;  and  at  the  termination  of  this  romantic 
Opera,  the  most  decided  and  enthusiastic  applauses  were  bestowed  on 
the  \thole. 


The  performances  here  last  night  were  attended  by  a  crowded  and 
delighted  audience. 

Adelphi  Theatre. — The  lateness  of  the  hour  at  which  the  curtain 
fell  prevents  our  giving  a  detailed  critique  on  Valmondi.  We  can 
merely  state  that  the  scenery  is  splendid,  and  highly  picturesque,  the 
decorations  and  dresses  rich  and  appropriate. — Much  of  the  music 
met  with  approbation.  Mr.  Wrench,  after  a  neat  apology  for  some 
inaccuracies  of  the  representation,  gave  out  the  melo-drama  for  re- 
petition amidst  unmixed  applause.  We  shall,  on  a  future  occasion, 
report  upon  it. 

Olympic. — Last  night  this  little  Theatre  was  numerously  attended. 
The  amusing  piece  of  Jill  at  Coventry  went  CiT  with  its  usual  ap- 
plause, and  was  followed  by  Hydrophobia,  in  which  there  is  some 
pretty  dancing.  The  Exeter  Mcil  concluded  the  evening's  perform- 
ances, and  kept  the  audience  in  continual  laughter,  and  the  various 
parts  were  tolerably  performed.

The  second  performance  of  Der  Freischutx  here,  last  night,  was 
os  successful  as  on  the  first  performance,  and  the  music  gave  the 
highest  delight  to  a  numerous  and  genteel  audience.  It  may  be  re- 
marked, of  Weber,  that  he  does  not  succeed  so  fully  in  the  light 
style  of  composition,as  in  that  intended  to  express  sentiment  and  deep 
impressions.  There  is  a  Cathedral  strain  in  most  of  the  music  of  this 
Opera,  and,  therefore,  some  degree  of  monotonous  effect  is  produced. 
Yet,  it  communicates  a  feeling  so  entirely  congenial  with  the  tendency 
of  this  romantic  drama,  that  the  attention  is  more  fixed  on  the  passing 
scene  this  heightened,  than  on  critical  distinctions.  The  Overture 
and  several  of  the  other  pieces  of  music  were  encored.  A  great  de- 
sire to  see  this  Opera  is  evi*ced  in  all  quarters  ;  and  the  splendid  and 
ingenious  manner  in  which  it  has  been  brought  forth  here,  adds  to  the 
general  attractions  of  the  music,  &c.  The  Incantation-scene  is  the 
most  powerfully  effective  display  of  combined  horrors  that  ever  was 
beheld  on  the  stage.  It  again  drew  forth  the  loudest  approbation 
from  all  quarters  of  the  house. 

After  the  Opera,  the  Farce  of  The  Poachers  was  acted,  aid  pro- 
duced much  laughter.  We  cannot  say  that  it  is  altogether  so  pure 
a  piece  as  we  should  wish  to  see. 


This  charming  little  Theatre  is  determined  to  stand  its  ground 
firmly.  Its  late  reinforcements  are  powerful ;  and  it  is  supposed  will 
hold  out — its  attractions,  until  November  Is  somewhat  advanced. — 
Madame  Vestris  took  her  leave  last  night  in  JUrs.  Ford  ;  and  in 
Laura,  in  Sweethearts  and  Wives. — She  goes  to  Dublin,  we  hear. 

The  cleverest  Miss  Kelly  of  all  the  Miss  Kellys,  makes  her  first 
appearance  here  this  evening. — She  is  a  host  in  herself. 


Drury  Lane  Theatre — We  find  that  the  several  improvements 

being  nearly  completed,  and    the  whole  of  the  interior  of  this   fine 

!  Theatre  having  been  re-erobellished,  it  will   open  on  Saturday,  the 

23rd  instant ,  and  the  performers   aie   summoned    to   attend    in    the 

green-room,  on  Monday  next,  the  18th,   at  II  precisely.

Apelphi. The  second  performance  of  Valmondi,  last   night,  was 

attended  with  eminent  success.  This  Theatre  is  likely  to  reap  a  good 
harvest  from  it.  The  afterpiece  of  Wo  Dinner  Yet,  is  very  laughable. 

Sinclair  will  resume  his  situation  at  Covent-garden  theatre  in  a 
day  or  two.  His  theatrical  tour  in  Scotland  has  been  eminently  suc- 
cessful, both  as  to  fame  and  its  more  solid  accompaniment.  He  is  to 
make  his  first  appearance,  we  understand  in  a  new  Opera. 

Miss  Foote.— The  following,  respecting  the  above-named  charming 
and  accomplished  actress,  we  have  received  from  a  Correspondent,  in 
whose  veracity  we  believe  we  may  place  perfect  reliance  ; — 

"  This  young  lady,  if  report  be  true,  will  have  cause  to  say,  with 

an  able  author,  % 

'  Oh  !  that  mine  enemies  would  write  a  book. 

"  It  was  not  the  intention  of  the  friends  of  Miss  Foote  to  say  one 
word  upon  the  extraordinary  conduct  of  Mr.  Hayne,  but  wait  pa- 
tiently the  result  of  her  appeal  to  the  Court  of  Kind's  Bench.  Since, 
however,  the  wiseacres  in  the  play  of  that  gentleman  have  trumpeted 
throutfh'the  London,  and  even  Provincial  Papers,  a  garbled  and  un- 
true statement,  and  having  besides  insinuated  that  he  had  not  intended 
to  marry  the  young  ladv,  it  will  suffice  for  the  present  to  state-- 
That  Mr.  Hayne  directed  (and  his  Solicitors  approved  on  his  part) 
the  rough  draft  of  the  settlements  to  be  made  on  his  intended  bride  ; 
that  he  fixed  the  day  to  be  married ;  that  he  caused  the  bridesmaid 
to  be  brought  a  distance  of  200  miles,  and  to  be  introduced  to  him  ; 
that  he  purchased  and  tried  on  the  wedding  ring,  and,  in  his  own 
proper  person,  procured  at  Doctors'  Commons  the  license. 

"  This  statement  will  be  sufficient  for  the  present  to  relieve  the 
minds  of  Miss  Foote's  friends. 

"  At  the  trial  a  recital  of  facts,  demonstrating  one  of  the  most 
aggravated  cases  of  "  breach  of  promise"  will  be  brought  forward 
that  has  ever  occurred  in  a  Court  of  Justice. 

"  Mr.  Hayne  is  invited  to  contradict  one  iota  of  this  statement  if 

*  Thus  bad  begins,  but  worse  remains  behind., — Hamlet. 
<•  The  paragraph  announcing  the  day  for  celebrating  the  marriage 
of  Miss  Foote  with  Mr.  Hayne,  we  have  authority  to  state,  was  in- 
serted at  the  express  and  earnest  desire  of  Mr.  Hayne.  We  have  the 
same  authority  to  add,  that  neither  Miss  Foote,  nor  any  friends  at 
her  suggestion,  have  written,  or  caused  to  be  inserted,  one  line  in  any 
Newspaper:' —(British  Press.)

On  Saturday,  Der  Freischutz  was  performed  to  a  very  crowded  au- 
dience. We  think  wo  never  heard  Miss  Paton  in  finer  voice:  she 
gave  all  her  songs,  and  particularly  the  scena  in  the  second  act,  in  a 
-style  that  delighted  in  the  highest  degree.  The  utuust  silence  pre- 
vailed in  parts  where  she  reduced  the  note  with  a  clear  and  delicate 
expression,  and  that  silence  was  only  broken  by  the  buzz  of  appro- 
bation which  terminated  in  loud  applause.  The  Overture,  and  tho 
Hunting-chorus  in  the  last  scene,  were  rapturously  encored  ;  and  the 
famous  Incantation-scene  was  managed  in  the  most  appalling  manner. 
The  John  Bull  of  yesterday  says,  "  we  are  sick  of  the  very  name  of 
Der  Freischutz,"  and  so  they  may  be  if  they  have  gone  the  rounds 
of  the  various  Theatres  where  it  has  been  bi  ought  out.  Its  popularity 
is,  however,  thus  amply  proved,  by  the  eagerness  every  Manager  has 
shewn  to  produce  it.  In  this  vast  metropolis  there  are  stiil  many 
thousands  of  persons  who  have  not  yet  beheld  it. 


In  the  amusing  Comedy  of  The  Road  to  Ruin,  on  Saturday  night, 
Old  Dornton  was  acted  by  Mr.  Dowton  with  much  ability,  although 
in  a  very  different  style  from  that  of  the  retired  favorite,  Mr.  Mun- 
den.  On  this  occasion,  Miss  Kelly  made  her  first  appearance  on 
these  boards  in  the  character  of  Sophia:  need  we  say,  she  was  re- 
ceived with  unbounded  applause  ?  In  fact,  Miss  Kelly  has  talents 
that  have  long  been  so  fully  appreciated  by  the  public,  that  it  is  mat- 
ter of  much  regret,  we  do  not  find  her  again  attached  to  one  of  our 
great  winter  Theatres  Some  reasons  are  said  to  exist  for  this  non- 
engagement  there,  which  we  trust  may  be  removed.  But  let  us  be 
pleased  while  we  may — we  have  her  at  the  "  Little  Theatre  ;"  and 
there  let  every  one  go  and  see  her.  She  played  Nell,  in  The  Deril  to 
Pay,  in  the  most  humorous  style,  to  Mr.  Dowton's  laughable  Jobson. 
The  house  was  excellently  attended. 

Adelphi. — Valmondi,  the  new  piece  just  produced  here,  is  one  of 
the  most  interesting  dramatic  Romances  of  its  kind  we  ever  saw  ;  and 
is  uncommonly  well  acted  in  its  chief  parts.  It  is  founded  on  the  fa- 
mous story  of  St.  Leon,  a  man  gifted  with  a  fatal  durability  of  ex- 
istence, and  abounds  with  striking  incidents.— The  house  has  beea 
crowded  every  night  since  it  opened.

Mtt.  HAYNE  and  MISS  FOOTE. 

Mr.  Hayne  has  sent  the  following  Letter  to  the  Press. 

"  Sir, — It  never  was  my  intention  to  have  troubled  the  public  with 
any  circumstances  which  have  taken  place  between  Miss  Foote  and 
myself,  had  I  not  felt  something  was  due  to  truth  in  the  contradiction 
of  those  paragraphs,  which  made  it  necessary  my  Attorney  should  do, 
in  your  columns  of  yesterday.  There  I  hoped  the  matter  would  have 
rested,  until  the  action  Miss  Foote  has  thought  proper  to  commence, 
developed  every  thing  ;  but  the  challenge  which  appears  in  your  paper 
of  this  morning,  "  inviting  me  to  contradict  one  iota  of  the  ^statement 
if  I  dare,"  compels  me  reluctantly  to  put  the  public  in  possession  of 
facts,  which  I  think  will  justify  my  conduct — intending  to  leave  my 
power  of  contradicting  such  statements  to  the  proper  time  and  place. 
.Delicacy  to  the  lady  would  almost  silence  me,  did  I  not  feel  and  know 
it  is  so  little  attended  to  by,  or  heeded  on  her  part. 

But  to  the  point: — I  was  not  aware,  when  I  made  a  proposal  to 
Miss  Foote,  that  she  had  ever  been  under  the  protection  of  Colonel 
Berkeley — her  father  and  mother  having  always  upheld,  (and  I  be- 
lieved) her  to  be  a  paragon  of  virtue  ;  and  had  not  Colonel  Berkeley, 
in  the  latter  end  of  June  last,  in  the  presence  of  James  MAxse,  Esq. 
(as  the  Colonel's  friend)  and  Thomas  Best,  Esq.  (as  my  friend) 
owned  her  having  had  children  by  him,  the  youngest  then  not  a  month 
old,  I  should  have  been  in  ignorance  of  the  facts,  until  too  late  to 
retrieve  my  happiness. 

If  I  were  to  make  every  other  circumstance  public  at  this  moment, 
I  should  be  anticipating  the  defence  I  have  at  that  trial,  u  where  a 
recital  of  facts,  demonstrating  one  of  the  most  aggravated  cases  of 
breach  of  promise  will  be  brought  forward." 

"  My  withers  are  unwrung — " 

Now  a  word  for  Mr.  Foote — who,  under  the  plea  of  purchasing  a 
Paymastership,  borrowed  the  sum  of  one  thousand  one  hundred  and 
fifty  pounds  from  me  ;  may  I  ask  him  (if  he  is  in  this  country)  to 
what  purpose  it  has  been  appropriated? — being  given  to  understand 
that  the  fear  of  being  "  called  upon  to  return  it,"  has  induced  him  to 
make  a  continental  tour. 

The  mention  of  the  above  facts  "  out  of  the  niany,"  will,  I  trust, 
induce,  the  public  to  suspend  their  further  opinion,  until  the  appeal 
made  to  the  Court  of  King's  Bench  is  decided.  And  in  thus  intruding 
upon  their  notice,  I  cannot  but  congratulate  myself  at  my  escape. 

I  am,  Sir,  your  obedient  humble  Servant, 

Joseph  Hayne. 
2S,  Upper  Grosvenor  Square,  Friday,  Oct.  15. 

Miss  Foote's  Solicitor,  in  reply  to  the  above,  declares  that  the 
proposal  of  marriage  were  made  by  Mr.  Hayne,  after  the  knowledge 
of  the  circumstance  he  alludes  to.

Again  Der  Freischutz  drew  a  most  numerous  and  genteel  audience, 
who  seemed  highly  gratified  with  the  admirable  music,  and  the  ge- 
neral effect  of  the  piece.  Whilst  this  attraction  continues  in  the 
same  degree,  it  is  scarcely  to  be  expected  that  the  Managers  will  pre- 
sent any  of  their  other  novelties  ;  indeed,  even  that  great  actor,  Mr. 
Young,  has  been  put  into  the  corps  de  reserve  by  the  Black  Hunts- 
man of  Bohemia,  and  we  imagine  he  will  not  be  called  into  action, 
unless  on  some  Monday  night,  after  the  race  of  the  above  dark  hero 
is  nearly  over. 

The  Pantomime  still  has  its  charms  for  a  certain  class,  who  ad- 
mire the  feats  of  Harlequin  above  every  thing,  because  his  practical 
jokes  suit  their  comprehension  and  taste  exactly. 


Mr.  Dowton  performed  Doctor  Canlwell  here  last  night  with  all 
his  wonted  effect.  It  is  a  character  that  highly  disgusts,  whilst  we 
cannot  help  being  pleased  with  the  actor,  who  like  Mr.  Dowton  fills 
it  with  such  amusing  reality  of  manner.  If  this  Play  is  useful  in  cor- 
recting a  taste  for  fanaticism,  it  at  the  same  time  is  very  likely  to 
create  a  prejudice  against  every  display  of  religious  sentiment  ;  and. 
all  who  utter  a  word  of  that  nature  are  liable  to  meet  more  suspicion 
of  hypocrisy  than  they,  perhaps,  merit.  Mr.  Liston  convulsed  the 
audience  by  his  comic  representation  of  the  fanatic  Maw-worm ;  and 
the  other  characters  were  very  ably  supported. 

In  Sweethearts  and  f fives,  we  had  Miss  Kelly  in  the  character 
of  Laura,  which  she  represented  extremely  well ;  although  we  will 
not  say  that  in  the  vocal  department  she  shines  very  brightly-  There 
was  much  laughter  at  Mr.  Liston's  Bitty  Lackaday  of  course. — The 
house  was  well  attended. 

Drury  Lane. — The  external  improvements  being  nearly  completed, 
and  the  whole  of  the  interior  having  been  re-embeliished.  this  Theatre 
will  open  on  Saturday  next,  Oct.  23, 1824,  with  a  Comedy,  and  other 
entertainments.  Weber's  celebrated  and  popular  Opera  of  Der 
Freischutz,  will  be  produced  at  this  Theatre  in  the  course  of  the 
next  week. — The  whole  of  the  music  will  be  given,  and  will  be  sung 
by  the  respective  characters  as  when  originally  produced  at  Berlin. 
A  new  melp-dramatic  Tale  of  Enchantment,  in  which  will  be  intro- 
duced Mons.  Ducrow  and  his  Equestrian  Troop,  ( who  are  engaged 
for  a  few  weeks  only)  will  be  produced  on  Monday  next.  Monsieur 
Hulltnt  and  his  Pupils  are  engaged  for  a  limited  period,  and  will  ap- 
pear in  a  new  Divcrtisemcnt  on  Saturday  next. 


THEATRICAL   OBSERVER* 


At)ELPHi. — Another  very  crowded  audience  was  greatlj  interested 
last  night  with  Valmondi ;  or,  the  Unhallowed  Sepulchre.  It,  really, 
does  great  credit  to  the  management. 

Olympic. — One  of  the  chief  attractions  here  is  the  engaging  and 
clever  Miss  Glover,  (daughter  of  our  favorite  Mrs,  Glover.)  The 
performances  are  also  of  a  nature  to  entertain. 

Incledon's  Farewell.— On  Friday  last  the  Southampton  Theatre 
was  crowded,  in  consequence  of  as  announcement  that  the  above  once 
celebrated  singer  was  to  sing  four  of  his  most  popular  songs,  and  to 
take  leave  of  the  stage  in  a  short  address.  It  is  not  generally  known 
that  Incledon  made  his$e#«£at  Southampton  exactly  forty  years  ago. 
The  late  Mr.  De  Veulle  hearing  him  sing  a  song  at  a  public-house, 
was  so  much  struck  with  his  extraordinary  powers,  that  he  introduced, 
him  to  his  Theatre.  He  immediately  received  the  warmest  tribute  of 
admiration,  and  rapidly  rose  into  fame.  The  songs  he  selected  on 
this  occasion  were,  *  Black-eyed  Susan,"  "  Death  of  Admiral  Ben- 
bow,"  "  Scots  wha  hae  wi'  Wallace  bled,"  the  celebrated  duct  of 
"  All's  Well,"  with  Mr.  Boltox,  and  "  Then  farewell  my  trim-built 
Wherry."  To  criticise  the  singing  of  a  mail  upwards  of  sixty,  who 
lias  undergone  the  hardships  he  has,  would  be  ridiculous;  that  wasi 
not  the  thing  looked  for — suffice  it  to  say,  his  singing  shewed  what  he 
once  could  do.  There  was,  however,  something  very  affecting,  and 
perhaps  pleasing,  in  tha  contrast  (in  the  duet)  between  his  voice 
quivering,  and  all  in  want  of  breath  to  fill  it,  yet  still  manly  and 
poweiful,  and  Mr.  Bolton's,  youthful  and  full  of  cadence  and  exe- 
cution. It  is  unnecessary  to  say  that  he  wras  most  rapturously  ap- 
plauded, and  the  duet  was  encored.  After  the  last  song  he  addressed 
the  audience  nearly  as  follows: — "  Ladies  and  Gentleman, — It  is  with 
the  sinccrest  feelings  of  gratitude  that  I  am  capable  of,  that  I  stand 
before  you  this  evening  to  return  you  my  most  heart-felt  thanks  for 
the  distinguished  patronage  you  have  ever  conferred  on  me.  In  this 
town,  and  on  these  boards,  I  first  appeared  as  a  singer:  and  the  en- 
couragement I  then  received  from  you  has  proved,  I  may  say,  my 
passport  to  fame.  Ladies  and  Gentlemen,  since  that  period  I  have 
passed  through  many  vicissitudes — I  have  served  his  Majesty  in  many 
engagements — there  is  not  a  ship  in  the  navy,  nor  are  there  many 
towns  in  the  country,  that  I  have  not  sung  in  ;  but  still  your  early 
liberality  has  never  been  effaced  from  my  memory.  It  is  now  six  years 
ago  since  I  left  the  stage,  but  it  has  always  been  my  wish  to  appear 
once  more  before  yoi;.  Ladies  and  Gentlemen,  age,  sickness,  and  in- 
firmities have  altered  me  much  from  what  I  once  was  ,  but  I  have  al- 
ways done  my  best  to  please  my  kindest  patrons,  and  I  repeat  it, 
Ladies  and  Gentlemen,  while  I  live  I  shall  never  forget  the  support 
and  encouragement  I  have  received  from  the  inhabitants  of  South- 
ampton."— A  tremendous  burst  of  applause  followed,  and  the  veteran 
retired  from  the  stage  forever. — Globe  and  Traveller.

"  Nothing  extenuate  nor  set  down  aught  in  malice.1 ' 

No.  902        Wednesday,   Oct.  20,   1824.  Price  Id. 

Cofccnt  (fiarticn  €l)eatr& 

Tiihre  was  another  numerous  audience  here  last  night,  to  see  Der 
Freischutz,  and  the  petite  Comedy  of  Charles  the  Second.  The  usual 
encores  took  place  in  the  former;  and  in  the  latter,  we  had  the  plea- 
sure of  seeing  the  charming  Miss  M.  Thee  make  her  first  appearance 
for  the  season,  in  her  former  character  of  JUary.  This  young  lady 
merits  the  high  favor  she  enjoys,  not  only  on  account  of  her  excellent 
professional  talents,  bat  because  she  is  really  amiable  and  well-con- 
ducted.' She  can  enter  the  green-room  without  being  sneered  at  as 
the  mistress  of  any  lordling,  colonel,  or  heavy-pursued  puppy.  She, 
as  far  as  her  natural  modesty  will  permit,  can  boldly  face  an  audience 
without  dreading  any  degrading  observations,  or  parallels  with  the 
wantons  of  the  lobbies.  Would  to  heaven  !  every  lady  of  the  green- 
room could  say  the  same  !  It  is  lamentable  that  there  should  exist 
amongst  the  female  members  of  the  theatrical  profession,  so  many 
instances  of  loose  conduct.  This  is,  we  are  convinced,  greatly  owing 
to  the  want  of  some  rigid  system  in  regard  to  the  management  of  the 
green-rooms.  Perhaps,  it  would  not  be  very  easy  to  exclude  certain 
fashionables  who  frequent  these  places  for  obvious  purposes  ;  but  it 
is  perfectly  in  the  power  of  the  ladies  themselves  to  regulate  their 
conduct  by  such  prudent  principles,  as  to  compel  these  men  to  treat 
them  with  the  same  deference  that  would  be  demanded  in  the  drawing 
room  of  a  respectable  family  Every  lady  of  the  green-room  should 
shew  more  spirit  and  senRe  of  what  becomes  them,  than  to  allow  a 
set  of  unprincipled  fellows  to  hold  them  in  the  light  of  those  wretched 
tricked-out  creatures  who  parade  the  saloon  for  hire.  Shame  !  double 
shame,  must  fall  on  the  head  of  her  who  having  already  ample  means 
derived  from  a  liberal  profession,  yields  herself  up  a  prey  to  any  man 
of  wealth  or  title,  for  the  baubles  he  may  bestow.  We  have  been 
called  on  to  insert  in  our  Paper  a  list  of  the  names,  not  only  of  such 
members  of  the  theatrical  corps  as  have  flagrantly  devoted  themselves 
to  vice,  but  of  those  who  cultivate  the  arts  of  seduction  in  the  green- 
room. It  would  be  a  painful  task  for  us ;  and  nothing  but  a  sense  of 
aa  increasing  evil,  will  induce  us  to  meet  the  desire  expressed.  It  has 
never  been  our  aim  to  hand  any  one  down  to  infamy  ;  but  a  more 
powerful  motive  than  personal  tenderness — the  good  of  society— may 
draw  us  into  an  attempt  to  check  the  inroads  which  a  set  of  dissolute 
meu  arc  making  on  the  reputation  of  our  green-rooms. 


THEATRICAL   OBSERVER* 


Last  night  we  had  in  The  Rivals,  several  novelties. — Mis3  Kelly 
appeared  as  *Lydia  Languish,  and  Mrs.  W.  West,  as  Julia,  which 
were  extremely  well  acted  by  them.  Then  there  were  two  debuts:-—' 
a  Mr.  .Raymond,  from  Birmingham,  represented  Faulkland,  and  a 
Mr.  Duff,  from  Edinburgh,  filled  the  character  of  Da&id.  Of  Mr. 
Raymond  we  will  remark,  that  he  was  barely  respectable ;  he  shewed 
no  genius  whatever  for  the  stage  in  this  character.  We  cannot,  how- 
ever, take  upon  us  to  say  that  he  would  not  appear  to  more  advan- 
tage in  some  other  line  of  character.  Of  Mr.  Duff,  we  are  happy 
to  observe,  that  he  acted  the  short  ;part  ©f  David  extremely  well; 
and  we  have  little  doubt  but  that  he  will  become  very  useful  to  a  Lon- 
don Theatre,  and  very  agreeable  to  a  London  audience.  Mr.  Dowton, 
m  Sir  Anthony  Absolute,  and  Mr.  Vixino,  as  Jack  Absolute,  acted 
very  pleasantly.  Mrs.  Windsor,  in  Mrs.  Malaprop,  also,  gav«  much 
satisfaction.  Mr.  Liston's  Acres  created  much  amusement  : — he 
was  in  an  excellent  acting  humor. — The  house  was  crowded. 

Accident  at  the  Adelphi  Theatre. — Thursday  night  last  at  the 
Aclelphi  Theatre,  an  accident  which  was  likely  to  have  proved  serious 
in  its  consequences,  happened  to  Mr.  Payne,  the  principal  vocalist  of 
the  above  establishment.  Mr.  Payne,  it  appears  was  in  his  dressing- 
room,  adjusting  himself  preparatory  to  the  performance  of  a  grand 
chorus,  in  Valmondi,  in  wnich  he  sustains  a  singing  character,  when 
it  was  announced  that  the  period  had  nearly  arrived  for  his  entrance. 
Mr.  P.  with  considerable  haste  quitted  the  room,  and  was  proceeding 
down  stairs,  and  not  being  perfectly  acquainted  with  the  structure  of 
the  place,  in  making  a  sudden  turn  he  was  precipitated  headforemost 
over  the  bannisters  to  the  stage,  a  considerable  height,  and  inflicted 
a  severe  cut  on  his  nose,  from  which  the  blood  flowed  profusely,  and 
we  regret  to  say,  that  he  was  otherwise  considerable  bruised  by  the 
fall.  The  performances,  however,  could  not  be  delayed,  and  the 
gentleman  was  obliged,  in  his  "  bleeding  state,"  to  enter  the  stage 
with  a  handkerchief  before  his  face  to  wipe  away  the  blood,  which 
was  perceptible  to  the  audience,  who  were  somewhat  concerned,  con- 
ceiving that  something  more  serious  had  happened  to  him  :  but  not- 
withstanding the  unpleasant  dilema  in  which  he  was  involved,  he  sang 
with  his  usual  ability,  until  he  retired  from  the  stage,  when  he  was 
evidently  much  affected  by  the  accident,  loss  of  blood,  &c.  Every 
assistance  was  afforded  him,  and  the  audience  appeared  impatient  to 
ascertain  the  state  of  the  gentleman,  when  it  was  announced  that  the 
nature  of  the  accident  was  not  so  serious  as  to  interfere  with  his  pro- 
fessional engagements,  but  had  left  a  severe  incision  of  his  nose,  and 
a  few  bruises.  The  cause  of  accident  is  attributed  to  the  over 
anxiety  of  Mr.  P.  not  to  keep  the  ^tage  waiting.

J)er  Frcischutz  is  a  standing  dish  here  ;  and  it  appears  we  are  to 
have  another  course  of  the  same  ingredients  at  Drury.  Well ;  if  it 
shall  be  found  to  answer  the  purposes  of  the  Proprietors,  we  cannot 
object,  any  further  than  that  we  think  we  ought  to  have,  by  and  bye, 
something  of  sterling  home-made  quality,  to  vary  the  performances, 
and  do  credit  to  the  Managers  as  the  supporters  of  a  genuine  British 
Stage.  It  appears  extraordinary  that  no  man  of  superior  talent  has 
of  late  years  ventured  into  the  dramatic  field.  Many  are  inclined  to 
attribute  this  to  a  perverted  taste  in  the  public,  and  a  necessity  which 
the  Managers  feel  to  administer  to  any  depraved  appetite  for  melo- 
dramas, &c  which  might  exist.  But,  in  our.  opinion,  nothing  of  the 
kind,  has  produced  the  indifference  of  men  of  genius  towards  dramatic 
writing.  The  fact  is,  there  has  taken  place  a  great  revolution  in  so- 
ciety since  the  days  of  Con'gk.eve,  Steele,  Farquiiar,  Dryde.v,  &c. 
when  the  pit  was  thronged  with  men  of  taste  and  learning,  and  the 
boxes  glittered  with  persons  of  the  first  fashion,  in  our  times,  al- 
though the  pit  is  occupied  by  a  rational  class,  yet  there  are  i'aw  cri- 
tics there  ;  and  the  dress-boxes,  although  filled  by  persons  in  genteel 
and  fashionable  life,  rarely  contain  any  who  deem  it  decorous  to  entat 
with  any  enthusiastic  feeling  into  theatrical  matters.  Thus,  the  high 
incentive  to  stage-writing — the  favorable  opinion  of  the  leading  wits, 
and  persons  of  taste,  of  the  day — is  gone  by,  and  nothing  but  the 
common  premium  for  labour — money — is  held  forth  to  induce  a  man 
of  genius  to  devote  his  time  and  attention  to  dramatic  writing.  Hfenco 
the  art  has  fallen  into  the  baud?  of  persons  whose  necessities  make 
them  study  safe  writing  ;  which  always  abounds  least  with  flights  of 
genius  ;  and  the  result  is  a  scries  of  common-plac€S  in  dialogue,  that 
rather  degrades  than  raises  the  character  of  our  drama.

The  performance  of  The  Merry  J  Fives  of  Windsor  last  night,-  at- 
tracted a  very  considerable  audience.  Mr.  Dowton's  Falslaf  we 
have  frequently  remarked  upon  as  a  very  successful  piece  of  acting. — 
He  keeps  close  to  the  genuine  humor  of  the  character,  and  rj&akes 
many  palpable  hits  ;  particularly  where  he  narrates  to  Master  Ford 
the  disasters  he  had  encountered  in  pursuing  his  intrigue  with  the 
Merry  Wives*  Ford  was  very  judiciously  played  by  Mr.  Pope.  Sir

Ford  was  sustained  by  Miss  Kklly,  for  the  first  time.  She  both  acted 
and  sang  with  very  excellent  effect,  and  was  ably  seconded  by  Mrs, 
Garrick,  as  *Mrs.  Page.  Miss  Povey  makes  a  nice  little  Ann  Page, 
and  gave  her  songs  with  her  usual  ability.  Mr.  Melrose,  in  Fenton 
sang  with  much  taste  and  general  good  effect.  The  whole  Comedy 
may  be  said  to  have  been  performed  in  a  very  successful  manner,  as 
the  audience  appeared  highly  pleased. 

The  Farce  of  "  Fish  out  of  Water,"  followed,  and  Mr.  Liston 
kept  the  house  in  great  good  humor  by  his  comic  representation  of

Surrey. — This  Theatre  was  numerously  and  fashionably  attended 
last  night,  to  witness  the  popular  pieces  of  The  Cook,  with  The 
Kceuba ;  or.  Indian  Pirate's  Vessel,  and  Der  Freischutz. 

To  the  Editor  of  The  Theatrical  Observer. 

Mr.  Editor, 

Being  an  honest  man,  and  a  sincere  lover  of  justice,  I 
think  myself  called  upon,  through  the  medium  of  your  very  useful 
and  widely  circulated  Publication,  to  expose  a  scene  of  the  most  fla- 
grant injustice  I  ever  witnessed  towards  an  unoffending  individual. 

Paving  a  desire  to  visit  Sadler'9  Wells  on  Monday  evening,  and 
arriving  there  rather  loo  early  for  the  performance,  in  the  interim,  I 
went  into  the  Hugh  Myddleton  Tavern  to  procure  some  refreshment. 
Three  respectable  looking  individuals  were  in  the  same  apartment,  and 
I  was  gradually  drawn  to  listen  to  their  conversation  ;  the  subject  of 
which  was  the  evening's  entertainments — the  middle  piece  I  understood 
was  a  parody,  and  that  without  even  knowing  the  subject,  ("except 
that  it  was  greatly  extoled  by  the  performers)  these  gentlemen,  thro' 
some  secret  motive  against  the  author,  were  going  for  the  express 
purpose  of  damning  it.  Their  watch-word  was  to  call  for  a  song  on- 
titled  "  Adam  and  Eve,"  never  announced  in  any  bill  of  the  perform- 
ance. The  gallery  was  to  be  the  rendezvous,  and  they  had  no  doubt 
but  the  gods  would  join  them  in  creating  a  row,  in  order  to  procure  a 
favorite  song.  Disgusted  with  such  duplicity,  I  entered  the  Theatre  ; 
the  performances  went  oil*  smoothly  till  the  second  piece — "  Adam  fy 
Eve,"  was  called  for,  hissing  and  dissatisfaction  were  the  consequence, 
and  one  of  the  best  burlesques  I  ever  witnessed,was  received  with  mur- 
murs, through  the  artifices  of  envious  and  designing  villainy.  But  I 
have  no  doubt  the  piece  will  have  a  fair  trial ;  and  trusting  you  will 
excuse  this  intrusion,  I  sign  myself,

The  Hypocrite,  and  Sweethearts  and  [Fives,  entertained  a  nume-

THEATRICAL   OBSERVER* 


SDmrp  Ham  €l)eatre, 

T*o-morrow  night  this  Theatre  opens  for  the  season  with  the  Opera 
of  The  Marriage  of  Figaro,  a  new  Divertisement,  in  which  Mons 
Hullin's  Pupils  are  to  appear,  and  the  Farce  of  Frightened  to  Death. 
The  Manager  has  announced  for  Monday  next,  a  new  Drama  of  En- 
chantment, under  the  title  of  "  The  Enchanted  Courser**  in  which 
that  wonderful  Equestrian,  Ducrow,  is  to  perform  some  extraordinary 
feats.  The  Management  have  published  a  List  of  the  Performers  en- 
gaged here,  which  we  shall  give  to-mowow. 

A  new  Comedy  has  been  read  in  the  Green  Room  of  Covent  Garden 
Theatre.  It  is  entituled  "  The  fFidowofCornhill,"  and  Mr.  Charles 
Kemble,  Mr.  Young,  and  Miss  Chester,  have  characters  in  it. 

To  the  Editor  of  The  Theatrical  Observer. 

Sir — I  read  your  Covent  Garden  article  of  last  Wednesday,  with 
very  approving  sentiments  at  the  indignant  language  you  used  in  re- 
spect of  the  loose  characters  in  the  green-rooms,  and  which  I  Rin- 
cerely  trust  will  arouse  such  attention  to  certain  persons  of  this  de- 
scription as  may  tend  to  make  them,  at  least,  conceal  their  amours 
for  the  future  from  the  public,  Who  cannot  but  despise  them,  although 
they  may  be  entertained  by  their  acting  on  the  stage.  But, Sir,  there 
is  another  degradation  attends  our  Theatres:  namely,  the  facilities 
given  to  shoals  of  abandoned  women  to  enter  the  boxes.  True,  they 
are  excluded  from  the  dress-circle,  but  the  circle  above,  to  which 
many  respectable  families  go  when  they  pay  an  informal  visit  to  the 
Theatres,  is  intruded  on  by  these  disgusting  creatures,  whose  language 
and  manners  are  totally  unfit  to  be  heard  or  witnessed,  particularly 
by  the  younger  members  of  our  families.  It  is  a  national  disgrace 
that  this  evil  is  permitted  to  the  length  it  exists  ;  and  through  the 
medium  of  your  little,  useful,  and  well  principled  publication,  I  ad- 
dress the  Managers,  by  entreating  them  for  the  sake  of  their  own 
and  their  country's  reputation,  to  banish  such  indecency  from  the 
half-dress  cirele,  as  it  may  be  termed  ;  and  thus  ensure  the  genteel 
and  correct  members  of  society,  who  love  a  good  Play,  an  opportunity 
of  indulging  a  sudden  desire  of  seeing  it,  by  going  in  walking  dress, 
to  a  part  of  the  boxes  where  they  will  not  be  molested  by  half-drunkeri 
women,  and  their  shameless  followers. 

I  am,  your's.
